I guess bypass the authentication process is not supported for
zope.Public protected objects.
 
Zope does authenticate the user. And later it checks security
for the object based on that user (authorization).

zope.Public is correct for public access, but it doesn't mean 
the user get not authenticated. Remember authentication and
authorization are two different things.

I'm not really sure. But I guess without authentication, 
Zope doesn't know if even zope.Public is allowed for this 
user because you can deny permissions. But I'm also not sure
without to introspect the code if zope.Public can set as deny.

Hope that gives some hints for deep into the internals
of IAuthentication. If you need a simpler implementation,
take a look at z3c.authenticator.
