[Zope] Google apps and SAML 2.0 authenticating using Zope

I need a SAML 2.0 solution for authenticating into Google Apps from a SAML 2.0 
request from Google Apps.  There are Java, PHP, Perl, Drupal, and other 
solutions but I didn't want to build from scratch if there was already a Zope 
solution available.  I haven't found a Zope product that does SAML 
authentication and the closest thing I found was the acas product but looks 
like it is specifically for authenticating into Zope only.

If there doesn't already exist a Zope solution, I've found a Python SAML 
library and plan to use it with Python LDAP in external methods to 
authenticate against my Fedora Directory Server.  That is unless there are 
better suggestions in reply to this email.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
