Security is inherently "placeful" in Zope2:  it requires being able to
verify that the logged-in user is authenticated in a user folder which
is in the "scope" of the protected resource.

As far as I'm concerned, Zope3's model is *not* intrinsically superior:
 it doesn't support the use cases of the Zope2 model at all.  Let's just
forget the "Zoep3 is better" mantra and find a workable near-term
solution here:  if we have to re-implement / tweak some Zope3 machinery
to make it "play nice" in Zope2, then let us do so, rather than
distorting both in a misguided effort at "Zope3 purity."

 - If that means continuing to use 'getToolByName' for traditional tools
  which need Zope2 security, fine;  folks who implement new utilities
  which don't need that compatibility can register them as pure

 - If it's easier to hack the LSM stuff to automagically wrap those
   returned  utilities which implement IAcquisitionWhatever, fine;  if
   that means in turn that folks must use the Zope2 LSM version in
   subsites, fine.

This is not "rape" by any stretch of the imagination;  this is
"adaptation" at its best.  Let's be pragmatic here, please.
