A PAS set-up with no enumerators.

Zope authenticates against the credentials vetted by an upstream 
authentication system.

Like I said, our current Shibboleth authentication system does just 
this. All requests coming into Zope are pre-vetted by Shibboleth, Zope 
just accepts the credentials, without requiring an enumerator.
