I wonder what you mean. Could you outline a way how you believe it should work? What are your concerns about security exactly? With zope you have security down to individual object attributes. Each time you access an attribute and dont have sufficient rights, you are presented with some way to login (the exact apearance however depends on the userfolder you use). So how do you think it should work instead and what are the improvements you see as well as the drawbacks?
