[Zope] NT authentication

I am trying to use NT Domain authentication with a Zope 2.7 install on
My old situation was Zope 2.3.2 installed on a Windows NT 4.0 BDC, with
LoginManager and my own login methods to authenticate to the host
machine. The performance was fine.
On the install I am hoping to migrate to, exUserFolder and the
smbAuthSource works but it is _really_ slow. I am now authenticating to
a remote BDC as opposed to the same machine, but by remote I mean on the
same 10/100/1000 LAN, so that really shouldn't be a performance
bottleneck. Looking at the code, there is no caching that I am aware of
and so it uses some of the calls to the PDC once for every object. Pages
below the exUserFolder take 4-5 seconds to load, where those not going
through it load in <1 second (same page used for testing).
I am thinking of maybe using one of the other user folders out there
that use caching (MySQLUserFOlder, LDAPUserFolder) as a template to make
my own, but if someone has a better idea...
