Thanks for the comment. For this particular use case it won't work 
without the context,. The context is used to look up further objects in 
the containment hierarchy. At this particular part in the code it is 
just about converting from/to widget/field value. So 
ignoreContext/ignoreRequest are not used anyway. (at least not to 
retrieve widget values).

However, maybe it would be better to pass ignoreContex and ignoreRequest 
to the sub-widget, and let the sub-widget decide whether to ignore the 
context/request or not. This could especially be useful in other parts 
of the muti-widget code.

Regards,
Gerhard
