Amos and I and the guys at Activestate were discussing cataloging at a
recent training sessions and we came up with the following possible
successor to CatalogAware.

The idea is that a CatalogAware object looks for two methods that return
sequecnes of Catalogs that many be interested in this object.  The first
is class defined method 'getClassCatalogs', the second is an instance
defined method 'getLocationCatalogs' that the instance can get from its
classes, its instance dict, or acquisition.

The idea is that you provide methods that define the policy for finding
Catalogs.  The default class defined 'getClassCatalogs' is identical
behavior to the old CatalogAware, but you can and probably will override
it.

Thoughts?
