I have trouble following this issue. I have no idea what the point of the attached code is.
Anyone know if None is being passed as the name in some locations? I don't think it would be helpful for me to go around reversing code changed by a security audit without some background.
I committed that change, but didn't do the original work. I did have a discussion with Jim which touched on it: the purpose of the change was to make access via '__getitem__' homogenous across all keys / indexes, because (as we thought, anyway) there was not any reasonable use case for heterogenous access.
Right. The name attribute was intended for attribute-based access.
IMO, it makes no sense to consider key values when doing security checks.
I will let Jim comment on your use case.
What use case? I missed it. Where is it?
