One thing I don't like about the default implementation is that if you
override IAbsoluteURL for a container, it has no effect for contained
objects.  I suppose there's a good reason for that -- efficiency -- but
it often makes custom IAbsoluteURL adapters pointless.  LocationProxy
helps then.

Photons have energy, and trying to cram too many into too small of a space can
cause a black hole to form, which is, needless to say, not a desirable trait
for an optical computer.
