...which in this case should return True, as None does indeed implement 
the interface in question.

I have a generic IFieldType (well, could arguably be called IFieldValue) 
adapter, which subclasses, eg:

class IFieldType(Interface): pass

class number(IFieldType): pass

class text(IFieldType): pass

class date(IFieldType): pass

class empty(IFieldType): pass

...etc..

The idea being that you can do things like:

text(anything)

...and if there's an adapter for it, it gets called and you get back 
something that implements IFieldType.

This couples nicely with, for example:

classImplements(unicode,text_type)
classImplements(int,number_type)
classImplements(float,number_type)
classImplements(date,date_type)
classImplements(type(None),empty)

def str_to_date(str):
     return parse(str,dayfirst=True)

provideAdapter(str_to_date,(str,),date)

Now, you could, for example, then do:

IFieldType([])

...which should return None.

cheers,

Chris
