If you're using getobject to retrieve bog-standard indexed DTML methods,
Python Scripts, etc., you should never get an unauthorized from getobject
(although you *will* later get an unauthorized if youy try to do anything
with that object if you don't have an adequate set of roles).  It's only if
you're using getobject to retrieve custom instances that it could
conceivably happen in getobject itself.  Or at least that's what my Zope
here tells me.  :-)

These problems suck.
