I'm building a couple of custom serializer Fields and I need access to the 
whole instance to make a decision on what to return.  If the serializer 
represents a single object, the field can use "self.parent.instance" to get 
the whole thing and everything works great.  When the parent is 
ListSerializer (actual serial is now self.child), there doesn't seem to be 
a way to get the current instance.  In that case, the code execution is 
Serializer.to_representation where instance is passed in but not made 
accessible nor passed down to the field.

Is this a bug or should I be doing something differently?
