Some people with certain usage patterns participated in the discussion
and adjusted their applications. The "fix" was under discussion for
quite some time before it was put into a release.

Yes, we could perhaps make it pluggable. Then again, the rationale
behind the fix is that Zope 2 traversal (regarding views) should
essentially be very much like Zope 3 traversal. The fix guarantees that.
One could argue that an application relying on the opposite behaviour is
relying on undocumented and essentially unexpected behaviour.
