| Supose we have a structure of objects like this:    A.__of__(B)

| We want to access, from a Zope Page Template, an attribute of "B" that
| is not present in "A"
| Accessing B.our_attribute attribute works fine.   But accessing
| A.__of__(B).our_attribute fails, and should work.

| of ImplPython.py.  The actual call is "if validate(inst, inst, name,
| v)", but the validate function says:
| Arguments:
|        accessed -- the object that was being accessed
|        container -- the object the value was found in
|        name -- The name used to access the value
|        value -- The value retrieved though the access.
|        roles -- The roles of the object if already known.
| Now, "accessed" and "container" are always the same, and in some cases
| should be different.   I attach a patch to solve this case that works
| for me.  I'm not sure if my code is the best way to solve the problem
| but, as I said, it seems to work fine.
| Of course, If the patch is accepted, the same change should be done in
| the C version.

Jim and I worked through this, and ended up putting back the use of
'aq_acquire' to do the validation, precisely becuase *it* knows what the
real container is (from guarded_getattr, you have to guess).  Please
verify that the head of the 2.7 branch resolves the issues you found.

Thanks very much for your work on this issue.  I'm sorry I let it slide
so long,
