I see. It is rather nasty to get different behaviour because of
differently imported global functions.
I do have the impression that getProxiedObject should be an instance
method of the proxy object, and not a global function -- this way, the
ContainedProxy could just override the method to do whatever it wants.
Then again, I know next to nothing about the whole proxying stuff. ;-)
Is there a reason getProxiedObject is a global function instead of an
instance method?
