I think we've been over this. It's not really a BBB foul because I
classified it as a bug when I found out about the issue
( The
rationale behind this thinking is being closer to Zope 3's behaviour
where folder/foo would first look up the 'foo' item in the folder, then
the @@foo view.

I think we've also come to an agreement to make this pluggable. I don't
remember anything happening, though. For all I care, we can go back to
the old behaviour with the only exception that ObjectManagers are
traversed attributes-first-views-later. Views should not shadow
contained items.
