Yeah I saw that, which is why I asked about it, I couldn't decide if
it was left sort of half-baked on purpose or not. I assume not, but I
wanted to make sure.

OK, but really I'm more interested in having this supported in Zope

associated costs if I have to. Surely making iteritems use a guarded
interator is the Right thing, yes?
