[Zope] XML - Setting Object Security Universally?

This is more on the stuff that I posted earlier about the External Methods....

This is my sample XML file:

    <VERSION_2_0 />

    <AuthorizedAgent SystemUserType="customer">


And I am trying to parse it such that I can <dtml-in> to the elements in question to extract it. 
Looking at XMLParse and such, a document already has to exist, and I want to be able to pass XML
through a variable and have it processed, so therefore I am using an *external method*.  However,
by the way that it is set up, each object is within an object, e.g. UserRequest has a
RequestHeader object in it and so forth.  I can extract it just fine, but I find that each object
is not a subobject.

My code:
import gnosis.xml.objectify as xp
from AccessControl import ClassSecurityInfo
from Acquisition import Implicit
import Globals



def xml_to_py(self):


	object = xp.XML_Objectify('/tmp/sample.xml')
	returning = object._PyObject.UserRequest
	## print dir(returning.RequestHeader)
	return (returning)


In order to keep the system from preventing Unauthorized errors and the Login-Forever sequence
going, I have to set each object within the object to allow access to unprotected subobjects.

Is there a better way to do this or a way to set every single one of these?
