Hi,

Ages ago, I started a thread (I think on this list) about the use of TAL 
expression in Zope 3-style page templates (i.e. ViewPageTemplateFile's 
used on views) incorrectly performing security checks when using TAL 
expressions.

I think Tres fixed it at the time (I can't find the original mail), but 
in Zope 2.12.2 there seems to have been a regression. I'd like to make 
sure I've not missed something, though.

I see the problem in Plone 4.0a2 on Zope 2.12, trying to use 
plone.app.registry. This package has a class that derives from 
plone.registry.registry.Registry (a "ZTK-only" version) and SimpleItem 
(to get Zope 2 security and ZMI visibility). Otherwise, it does nothing.

There is a view for this class registered like this:

     <browser:page
         name="view"
         for="plone.registry.interfaces.IRegistry"
         template="records.pt"
         permission="cmf.ManagePortal"
         />

In records.pt, there is the following:

     <tr tal:repeat="record context/records/values">
        ...
     </tr>

This fails with the stack trace below. However, if I change it to use a 
python: expression, it's all fine:

     <tr tal:repeat="record python:context.records.values()">
        ...
     </tr>



As you can see from the stack trace, the TAL expression has resulted in 
the use of restrictedTraverse(). I think it should be using 
unrestrictedTraverse(), since ViewPageTemplateFile's are filesystem code.

(In this particular case, it's failing the restrictedTraverse check 
because 'records' is a property and so doesn't have an aq chain, but 
nevermind that).

Stack trace:
