looking at this further, there really doesn't seem to be any good way to  
allow the root to be a non pas, and allow the plone default authentication  
(form based) to work with users in the root, without replacing the root.  
the way pas monkey patches the response during traversal, basically  
asserts only the inner most user folder gets a chance to challenge.   
apologies to the integrators, there really isn't a workaround for this  
outside of reworking pas's challenge mechanism or the challenge plugins to  
allow delegation up the chain, the means of which isn't apparent to me.
