I've observed an unexpected effect that you can override a skin based

I'm trying to get my head round all the various traversal code in
zope/five and would appreciate any tips from someone who knows this code
For some unknown reason CMF explicitly encoded that behaviour in
__bobo_traverse__. It's bitten Plone as well.
As far as I can tell, it's not actually encoded in __bobo_traverse__ but
in the interactions between Skinnable.__getattr__ and OFS.Traversable.
OFS.Traversable.unrestrictedTraverse looks up objects in the following
1. namespaces (@@ and ++)
3. getattr(aq_base(obj), name) # no acquisition
5. getattr(obj, name) # with acquisition
The difference in behaviour occurs because at the portal root skin
objects get picked up at number 3, whereas in other places they get
picked up at number 5, after views.
To fix this we need to add a __bobo__traverse__ method to Skinnable that
looks up objects in the order:
1. getattr(aq_base(obj), name), but excluding skin objects
3. getattr(aq_base(obj), name), including skin objects
4. getattr(obj, name)
