But today implicit acquisition is forced onto almost every zope class, and 
every attribute lookup. Sometimes the way to use acquisition correctly is not 
to use it at all, but that is often an impossible option. These 
characteristics mean implicit acquisition is not a "tool" - its a disease.

Imagine if you couldnt write a C++ class without including operator 
overloading functions......
