I think the answer to that question is both, but X['Y'] seem to have
precedents over X.Y.

class MyContainer(OOBTree):

class MyContent(Persistent):

Adding MyContent in MyContainer you can traverse MyContainer/MyContent/title
or you can traverse MyContainer/title equally well.  If I name MyContainer
'title' i get MyContent when I try MyContainer/title.
