While trying to write a test it turned out, that it's not a problem
in Five but in the interaction between Plone3 and Zope2/Five.
The problem we tried to solve was: We have a structure of Plone
content objects. We wanted to access a particular one in a view
which can be called anywhere. Therefore we registered this content
object as an utility. It turned out, that this utility does not have
a request after fetching it in our view with getUtility(). The
request is needed to get an absolute URL of our content object.
This is what I don't understand: why should content objects have
access to the request? I understand that the request is needed in
order to compute the absolute URL, but the IAbsoluteURL adapter is a
*multi*-adapter for (context, request). So it will always receive the
request explicitly in its constructor. This pattern is the foundation
of separating content from presentation: the content object is request-
unaware, the adapters and views around it are request-aware.
