It is your web browser, not a python script :-) It does that because it got a
"401 authentication required" response from zope.

Well, username/password will be send together with all subsequent requests to
zope. Zope veryfies if username and password match against the info retreived
from the acl_users folder. What happens there depends on what object
*is* acl_users (i.e. Generic User Folder, mySQLuser, ACL Manager, Login Manager
....)

Well, that is the way to get the management screen. Source can be viewed at
<zope-install>/lib/python/OFS/manage.dtml
