 While integrating the Zope component architecture and its many concepts into

 All classes, which wanted to interact with Zope2 in any non-trivial way, had to
 inherit from the Acquisition base classes. As a result almost no external
 package could directly work inside Zope2 but required an integration layer.
 
 With this version of Zope2 classes do have a second option of providing

 Classes implementing this interface get `__parent__` pointers set to their
 container object, when being put into the container. Code that operates on such
 objects can then walk up the containment hierarchy by following the pointers.
 In Acquisition based classes no information would be stored on the objects, but
