queryAdapter is used to look up named adapters.  It is also a simpler  
version of queryMultiAdapter, which looks up adapters for multiple  
objects. In neither of these cases does it make sense to consider the  
interfaces already provided by the object being adapted.  It makes no  
sense to me for queryAdapter to have different semantics depending on  
whether the name argument is provided (and is non-blank).
