My major concern is speed here.
It's a bit early to have that concern, we haven't even come up with a
strategy yet ;).

Any debug handling will make the registry
slower; I am using adapters very heavily in my code and any slow-down of one
lookup would be multiplied many times.
There are certainly ways in Python to have debug code in an application
that won't be run in production mode, e.g.:
# do expensive logging call here, or whatever
Code like this won't be run with python -O (which is what you'd
obviously use in production).
I wonder whether a different approach could be taken. The APIDOC code does
already a registration analysis. Maybe we can use the registrations in a away
that they simulate the adapter registry. Thus you could provide APIDOC (via
the Web UI or Python) with a component or instance and it tells you how it
tries to look up the adapter. Clearly that would be much slower, but okay for
Sounds good. I like the explainAdapter() suggestion.
