I often do just that. :-) I'm not 100% sure what you need to include for
that to work, but I would expect that it is Aqcuisition.Implicit.

Well, it does, but it typically causes infinite recursion if you aren't
careful. Something like this might work (this is untested code, adapted from
something that is a bit more complex that we are doing):

    def __getattr__(self, name, marker=None):
        if not name.startswith('_') and not name.startswith('aq_'):
            if not name in self._v_ignore_attrib:
                subob = getattr(self,name,_marker)
                    self._v_ignore_attrib=[]
                    # Return it in context of self, forgetting
                    # its location and acting as if it were located
                    # in self.
                    return aq_base(subob)
                else:
                    self._v_ignore_attrib.append(name)

        raise AttributeError, name

Aha. Well, I wouldn't call it trivial, but it is definitely doable.
