Not that I've done it, but I think this is within the theoretical limits
of a btree-backed user folder. I always try to use as few external
components as possible, and would consider moving everyone to Zope worth
at least a little experimentation.
However, that is an awfully large existing datasource, which is a very
good reason/excuse to just leave it be. The exUserFolder route has
worked well everytime I've seen it done. (Even with CMF.)
