[You should be able to find several references to this in the

Firstly, these old XXXUserFolder products still work acceptably unless
you are using the PTK (or other similar products). The incompatability
is not with Zope, but rather with these other products.

Adding to NUserFolder to keep up with API changes is probably not the
best solution, because the User Folder API has been significantly
extened. A better approach is to use a customisable User Folder
product like LoginManager.

It should be possible to transplant the authentication functions from
NTUserFolder. Ive not tried this, but it looks easy enough.

I hope this helps,
