I checked in a first cut of PAS (Pluggable Authentication Service)
for Zope 3:


I still have to finish working out the searching API and I need to
add delegation to higher (in the containment hierarchy) authentication

See in particular:



   - wrt name mangling: it is up to plugins to do name mangling on their own
     to avoid principal-id conflicts within a PAS.

     PAS does additional name mangling to avoid principal-id
     conflicts accross authentication services.

   - I've implemented support for challenge protocols as discussed on the
     zope-pas list.

   - I haven't written any plugins yet.  I expect we'll implement a number
     of plugins and implement a UI for the PAS at the upcoming sprint starting

Questions and comments are welcomed.
