Subsites are a pretty rare case, actually, and have *no* BBB
considerations, as they weren't really possible before.  I wouldn't say
we should hold up anything on that account, if no easy fix is available.

I think sub-ISites are actually going to become quite common (I
believe Plone 3.0 uses them extensively, and other extant products
that utilize local components do as well).  Unfortunately, the
interface name ISite was a somewhat poorly chosen one, since it really
has little to do with a Site in the portal sense, but is just a
location where persistent component registrations can happen.  I
imagine that complex content objects (blogs, mailing lists, forums)
and features that require placeful configuration (the portlets
infrastructure) will need to allow for local registrations of this

As far as the vote goes:

+1 on undeprecating getToolByName
+1 on removing acquisition wrapping from five.lsm and putting it in
