I'm currently playning with the functions from zope.app.appsetup.bootstrap and
I'm wondering why the functions that create objects (addConfigureUtility,
addUtility, configureUtility, ensureObject, ensureUtility) do return the name
of the object added (or None) and not the object itself. What is the reason
IMO in most cases you add a Utility you want to change some attributes of it
afterwards. In order to do that you need the object instance. To get it from
the name you have to perform a getUtility call. If the functions above would
return the object you could omit the getUtility.
What do you think about that?
