Too bad :(

You'll find it on the cps-users list. I'm not a CPS expert[1] - and not
even a Zope expert - but from what I saw, it seemed to imply more than
only TALES expressions...

[1] given the change pace and resulting lack of  documentation, I guess
only you Nuxeo guys have a good understanding of the whole product...

I don't doubt it works fine. I just didn't managed to make the whole
thing work, and couldn't afford to spend more time on it.

Probably. Certainly. But we'll have to live with it for at least this
and next iteration - our customer needs a working solution for
yesterday, and we have pretty good reasons to do whatever we can to
deliver yesterday.

Actually, no, r only. As I answered to Jens, it's part of a bigger
system, and we have very few freedom here. This will probably change in
the future, but we must first deal with the existing situation.

I know, that's why my first try was to use the CPSUserFolder +
metadirectories + etc solution.

Now from what I saw (I may  have missed some points, but...), we
concluded that using LDAPUserGroupsFolder, at least for the first
rounds, would be much more manageable - we (well... I) only forgot that
aquisition could come in the way :(

I'm afraid it's the only short-term solution we have.
