Have you ever toiled over an architecture dilemma for hours--even
days--and when you finally found the solution, it seemed as obvious as
the nose on your face?

The PTK now gets member data from the root PortalObject and makes no
assumptions about the existence of an acl_users folder.  The
PortalObject, as it stands now, gets the data from acl_users, but it
should be easy to change it so that is not necessarily so.  That is a
very important distinction.

That means we can still use ZODBMemberFolder and SQLMemberFolder for
now, but eventually make the transition to ZPatterns more easily.

PTKDemo no longer depends on LoginManager, but can make use of it if
you choose to do so.  So you have two options for your setup:

1) PTKBase + PTKDemo + DemoPortal + Wizard products

2) ZPatterns + LoginManager + PythonMethod + Membership + MembershipZ +
PTKBase + PTKDemo + DemoPortal + Wizard products

Happy hacking!
