Yup, I've just downloaded those.

Seems that RemoteUserAuth does some dirty hacks in Zope publisher :/
This seems to be from 2004. I'm not sure if it'll work with newer
Zope versions.
CACSiteRoot seems to translate URLs... something like
VirtualHostMonster. But I'm not sure why somebody reinvented the
whell so it possibly does something more.

Hm... I've looked at:

This is not detailed enough but seems that it should be not difficult to
do it with PAS. In general it is a bit similiar to CAS solution, but CAS
doesn't use so much cookies. I mean CAS4PAS may be a good base for
Pubcookie4PAS :)

If you want to know more about PAS take a look into it's sources at
interfaces.py and docs/.

If you want you may take a look at CAS4PAS plugin. It is simple, but
it is good to know how CAS and PAS works to understand this.
