Because the same adapter can be registered more than once, it would
actually need to find out all the names with which it was registered.
Really? Now this is a use case I hadn't thought of.. can you give me
some examples of where you've run into this?
This seems somewhat analogous to a Python object being given multiple
names. In that case too, there is no way for the object to know what
it's names are.
Hmmm, okay, but I'd counter with both Zope 2 and Zope 3 having the
notion of an object knowing its own name. Certainly in Zope 2,
everything has an id or .getId(). That pattern evolved for a reason ;-)
