(I am however using SHA-passwords, i. e. option 3).

As the result of your makeinstance call with say with instance

You can comment out this entry with

       / -->

and replace it with a different entry, try calling


answer the question, you will get a new 

  <principal .../>

that you can cut/copy&paste to your principals.zcml file,
then just restart Zope
