I think the only impact on a site without software which used the
feature would be a tiny performance ding (having to wrap the
'__bobo_traverse__' call with a 'try:...except:' block).  OTOH, since
the contract for '__bobo_traverse__' is already insane (it *has* to
behave differently for publishing traversal than for "normal"
traversal), perhaps this change would reduce that insanity.

We need to tweak OFS.Traversable as well, given that it calls
'__bobo_traverse__' too.

+1 for including the patch in the release tree.
