There is no problem. Look at protocol:

Specialist.getItem -> 
  Rack.getItem ->
    Rack.retrieveItem <- None
  Rack.getItem <- None
Specialist.getItem ->
  Rack.newItem ->
    Rack.createItem ->
      Rack.getItem ->
        Rack.retrieveItem <- None
      Rack.getItem <- None
    Rack.createItem <- item
  Rack.newItem <- item
Specialist.getItem <- item

There is no way to infinite recursion if Rack.getItem is leaved
untouched. getItem/newItem are not a high level methods, they are *part
of DataSource's protocol* which *implemented* in Rack with retrieveItem
and buddies.
