hi martin,

authenticating against cas in plone is implemented using CAS4PAS
(http://dev.plone.org/collective/browser/Products.CAS4PAS) and
(http://dev.plone.org/collective/browser/collective.castle). the
collective.castle has a stable branch that exposes CAS4PAS configuration as
a plone control panel.

note that these two enable plone to authenticate a plone site against a cas
server, not to act as one. we have been using the two packages and they
work. we do authorization against an LDAP server but i suppose it may be
possible to authz against source users as well as long as there's a common
user ID.
