> This is true in the ZODB, but can be complicated by acquisition.

Cheap cop-out: I was planning to avoid acquisition in my "business object" 
database (which will be a database separate from the Zope ZODB). Personally, 
I'm not very convinced of the necessity and advantages of acquisition, 
contrasted with the issues that often arise because acquisition picks a 
different thing from what the developer thought it would do. It seems OK for a 
strictly hierarchical collection of web-enabled objects, but I am thinking 
about a business model, where I don't see a lot of advantages in inflicting 
behavior onto objects through a containment hierarchy. But then, I didn't read 
the original paper so please prove me wrong.
