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