[Web-SIG] Communicating authenticated user information

Typically, web servers provide access logs that include a label
for the authenticated user.
Often, WSGI applications (or middleware) provide their own user
authentication facilities. Well, Zope does. :)
There doesn't seem to be a standard way for WSGI applications or
middleware to communicate the information necessary for a server
to log the authenticated user back to the server.
Am I missing something? How do other people handle this?
Is Zope the only WSGI application that performs authentication
