This problem has already been solved in Zope 3. There we like to wrap
objects that don't provide ILocation (__parent__ and __name__
attributes) in something that *does* provide ILocation. The resulting
object is a proxy for the original object and in addition that it
provides __parent__ and __name__ attributes. The proxy provides whatever
the original object provides plus ILocation.

We call this concept a /decorator/. This is not to be confused with
Python 2.4's function decorators. In Zope 3's case, think of decorator
as a proxy that also adds stuff to the object (e.g. the ILocation API).
Hence, it decorates the original object, like a Christmas tree if you will.

There are two options:

1. I think for the long term, IndexableObjectWrapper could be made a
decorator. This works as follows:

  from zope.proxy import getProxiedObject
  from zope.app.decorator import Decorator

  class IndexableObjectWrapper(Decorator):

      def allowedRolesAndUsers(self):
          ob = getProxiedObject(self)
          allowed = {}
          for r in rolesForPermissionOn(View, ob):
              allowed[r] = 1
          localroles = _mergedLocalRoles(ob)
          for user, roles in localroles.items():
              for role in roles:
                  if allowed.has_key(role):
                      allowed['user:' + user] = 1
          if allowed.has_key('Owner'):
              del allowed['Owner']
          return list(allowed.keys())

2. In the short term we can apply the following trick
(IndexableObjectWrapper needs to be a new style class!):

  from zope.interface import providedBy
  from zope.interface.declarations import ObjectSpecificationDescriptor
  from zope.interface.declarations import getObjectSpecification
  from zope.interface.declarations import ObjectSpecification

  class IndexableObjectSpecification(ObjectSpecificationDescriptor):

      def __get__(self, inst, cls=None):
          if inst is None:
              return getObjectSpecification(cls)
            provided = providedBy(inst.__ob)
            cls = type(inst)
            return ObjectSpecification(provided, cls)

  class IndexableObjectWrapper(object):   # new-style!
      implements(...)  # it can implement as much as it wants
      __providedBy__ = IndexableObjectSpecification()


This is obviously untested, but I'm pretty confident that this would work.
