There's a few things seriously wrong with your plan:

  - you want to create a way to manipulate a system's password/shadow  
files through the web by a web application. That's insane to begin  
with. Just don't do it. Have you ever thought about the security  

  - doing Perl methods or external methods in Zope has been deprecated  
years and years ago. You will have a hard time finding anyone to  
support that.
