Perhaps a useful question to ask here is "why wasn't my adapter chosen?"

  $ bin/debugzope
  >>> from zope.component.introspection import explainAdapter
  >>> from mypackage import MyAdaper, IMyDesiredInterface
  >>> my_obj = app.root()['somefolder']['someobj']
  >>> explainAdapter(my_obj, IMyDesiredInterface, desired_adapter=MyAdapter)
  'MyAdapter is registered for IFoo, but context does not provide IFoo.'

explainAdapter is probably a bad name for this.  Maybe the whole API is
bad.  Maybe it would be more useful to list all adapters that could
adapt your object to the desired interface, and list them in the order
of specificness:

  >>> for reg in matchingAdapters(my_obj, IMyDesiredInterface):
  ...     print reg.factory, reg.required
  <class somemodule.SomeGenericAdapter> (<interface IFooBase>, )
  <class somemodule.MyAdapter> (<interface IFoo>, )
  <class somemodule.SomeEvilAdapter> (<interface IMoreSpecificFoo>, )
