I had to integrate our local NIS domain into Zope3. So I wrote a PAU-Plugin
which receives passwd-style data via XMLRPC (client-script is included).

I don't know, how useful this is for your site, because this plugin is
rather tightly integrated into my own project (MpgSite).

SVN-Url: mpgsite: https://svnserv.cbs.mpg.de/svn/edv/EDV/mpgsite
The package name is 'mpgsite.users', the file you're probaly looking for
is 'mpgsite/users/passwd.py' . Each PasswdPrincipalInfo object contains
one line of the passwd.
