That's awesome news.

Well probably you are right and we can just leave most of the code in place and deprecate it. The only thing I would really like to see fixed is the current behavior of Five's BrowserView which wraps self.context in the view itself resulting in a pretty broken Acquistion chain for the context. Having to do "context = aq_inner(self.context)" every time one accesses the context in a view is just annoying.
