I guess I could look at that...I am having to authenticate against an
existing database of usernames and passwords so I just wrote it myself.

Actually I am not doing anything of the sort.
The whole page is a macro to start. The scripts that are being called
are all in this format:
<!-- define any template specific variables here -->
<tal:x tal:define="baseurl context/root/baseurl"></tal:x>
<tal:x tal:define="global session request/SESSION"></tal:x>
<tal:x tal:condition="python:not session.has_key('user')">
<tal:x tal:define="global accountname
global uadm python:'uadm' in roles;
global dadm python:'dadm' in roles;
global padm python:'padm' in
then below, the macro is being pulled in inside a different fill-slot.
