I believe that the Right Solution would be to design an API for the
underlying user database. I want to support people who, e.g. already
have user accounts through Zope or some other Web-app/portal software,
so that they don't have to force users to log in twice. This would
let us distribute a GPL compatible database back-end for stand-alone
operation, but should also let us integrate with existing user
That's about as far as my own thinking has gone.
