because I don't control the LDAP server and there are no groups on the

So really, all I want is that Zope checks the passwords with the LDAP

And perhaps, a possibility to check/search for the available loginnames
on the LDAP server when adding a user to the userfolder.

I'd say "start coding". There is nothing that fits your (somewhat strange) requirements. I would suggest you modify those requirements to come up with a saner plan. Could it be you're thinking too much in terms of specific implementation and too little in terms of what the underlying goals are?

First of all, what do you gain from "storing users in Zope"? Is your real goal to make sure only a subset of users from LDAP can access your site? That goal is easily fulfilled by configuring the LDAPUserFolder to store role information on the user folder and disregard the LDAP server. Then you just secure your site by requiring a certain role and only give that role to the subset of users you want to let in.
