Yes, I believe that is correct. I think the Portal is expecting the user
object to have some extra methods and properties that wouldn't necessarily
be in a standard Zope user object.

I'm in the process of decoupling the Membership system from the Portal
object. I'll probably have an early alpha within the next couple of days. My
hope is that when I integrate the Membership component back into the Portal
package, you'll be able to install Membership at your Zope root if you wish,
and use those users within a Portal.
