I'm surprised that a release with such a dramatic change didn't break
tons of sites running out there. Or maybe people upgrade reluctantly.

I was reluctant to post an issue on the collector since getObject has
been see-sawing on restricted- and unrestrictedTraverse for a very long
time and I thought I'd post here first as a sanity check. Before Zope
2.3 it was restricted then it changed to unrestricted and now we're back
to restricted again. But at the risk of somebody completely ignoring it
or changing it back to restricted in Zope 2.8 I'll be off to the
collector to log another issue ;-)
