That's the alternative I had in mind. You would be able to use the
ILocation API as an alternative to the Acquisition API.

The real goal behind all this is to make the security machinery in Zope
2 understand the ILocation API so that you won't *have to* rely on
Acquisition (but instead can use ILocation). Of course, you would still
be able to use Acquisition.
