zope.testing uses the attribute '__bases__' to store the information what

Specifically __bases__ is known to be used to store information which base
classes a class has.

This sort of misdirection has, unfortunately, a long history in Zope 3
(and the various things that's become).  Witness __name__.  (There are
others, but most aren't *actually* used by Python implementations.)

Removing existing __*__ name ("underware") usage is probably
untenable, but I hope we can avoid extending our foolishness.

Yeah, I guess so: my impression of the OO structure after understanding what's going on was quite satisfied. It's just very misleading. :)
