      This security pattern is called *delegation*, and is very common
      in Zope applications. By delegating different areas of your Zope site to
      different users, you can take the burden of site administration
      off of a small group of managers and spread that burden around
      to different specific groups of users.
      Later in the chapter we'll look at other security patterns.

         I think it may be valuable to point out at this step how a user actually would get to manage his subfolder. I.e.
         http://machine.com:8080/MyFolder/manage if he is a manager in the MyFolder folder.

         This was the point I am looking for. After creating an User in an sub folder I was not able to login, since
         the user has no root access.
         Now it works, thanks. It also works if I call manage if the folder is redirected via Apache.
