That's just *nuts*!

I can't see how that could happen. A Dexterity content item is a CMF 
content item, with the same base classes. And it certainly doesn't 
implement ICallableOpaqueItem.

(Do note that Dexterity has an event handler to do some indexing, 
because in Plone 3/CMF 2.1 at least, it didn't happen automatically).
