There's a persistent object in software space which stores the user session 
However, there's no identification of the user stored in there - except of the
login credentials (->only if you use the Session-Credential-Plugin of PAU).

You'll have to either assign i.e. the principal id to a user's session data
on session creation or be happy with the login name.


from zope.app.session.interfaces import ISessionDataContainer
from zope.app import zapi

def getlogins():
   for session in sessions:
      if 'zope.app.authentication.browserplugins' in session:
         yield session['zope.app.authentication.browserplugins'].getLogin()
