My idea was to do a big cleanup of Zope 2's traversal mechanisms. The
problem is that it will by necessity get rid some of the idiosyncrasies
(read: cruft and incoherences) of the current one, and in the process
probably break stuff. Which means it has to be optional, which adds even
more complexity to the code :( So in the end the realities of backward
compatibility are a big hurdle.
