Grrr.... That works fine. But it annoys me I cant use a standard function to
that. I like to use a standard function and use the checking that someone
else wrote.

   old_id = obj.id()
   new_id = ASPNTools.safetymunge(obj.id())

   self = obj.aq_parent
          ob = obj

   self._delObject(old_id)
                 if hasattr(ob, 'aq_base'):
               ob=ob.aq_base
          ob._setId(new_id)
   self._setObject(new_id, ob, set_owner=0)

Thanks Shane... phew no Perl necessary.
