Try this in a PythonScript:

d = {1:2}
for t in d.iteritems():

Annoyingly, it raises Unauthorized: You are not allowed to access 'a
particular tuple' in this context

Is there a reason for this, or is it just part of
AccessControl/RestrictedPython that hasn't been fleshed out yet?

The 'iteritems' method of a dictionary returns an object of type 'dictionary-iterator'; AccessControl.ZopeGuards makes no container assertions about that type, although it *does* permit calling the 'iteritems' method which returns an instance of it.

I find it interesting that that module wraps 'iterkeys' and 'itervalues' in its 'get_iter' checker, but allows unrestricted access to 'iteritems'.

The following patch will make your use case work (it would need to be prettied up for Python < 2.3):
