Earlier this year I developed two demo apps, LoginDemo and
PlainLoginDemo to explore how to setup the simplest possible
authentication/authorization functionality. Both are in the Zope SVN:


My conclusion at the time was that we have a long way to go before
even the simplest app requiring user logins can be called "easy" to do
in Grok.

There was some conversation in this list about the sample apps at the
time (jan/2008) which you may want to look up.

I am glad more people are concerned and willing to do something about this.
