All methods necessary to implement your own "ObjectManager" have
the "_" at the start. There is no official API allowing
to add new objects to an ObjectManager...

Why must "_setObject/_delObject" grow a new parameter "suppress_events"?
Where is it used for?
Up to now, the methods called "manage_afterAdd/manage_beforeDelete"
indiscrimently -- without the need to suppress these calls
(the predecessors of events).
In the very few places where "manage_afterAdd/manage_beforeDelete"
should behave specially, a specialized fake object was used.
Can classes no longer control event creation (such that a
parameter to "_setObject/_delObject" must be used to prevent
normal (event generating behaviour).

I am quite happy, when a single version of my "framework" works with
many Zope versions. I am even happier when nothing needs to be changed
for a new version (because it may take me quite a long time
before I/we accept a new Zope version and support it).
The following products installed here define their own
* several private products (for versioning, temporary instance
creation, "multi container")
