First of all that is why I asked for others to look at it.  :-)
But I DID test it by inserting an incorrect schema and it did throw the
correct error. I think it was the ShemaNotImplemented error. This was a
few weeks ago but I can repeat it if needed. 

As I explained before; when one schema is checked by _validate_fields
then all is well. The parameter 'errors' is None.  Then errors is set to
an empty list and any possible error msgs are appended. BUT  when a
schema has to check another schema because they are chained.  'errors'
is already an empty list but even though the parameter errors is None a
new list is appended to the first pass errors.  This creates the msg
WrongContainedType: [, []] because it IS a WrongContainedType because
there is an empty list inside the original list.  

'errors' is returned from _validate_fields back to the _validate method
of the Object class where it is simply tested to see if it is empty.  On
this second pass it ISN't empty.  It has another list inside so it fails
the truth test and incorrectly throws an error.

It is more verbose.  But I'm afraid it exhibits the same behavior as
described above.  Here are the results:

in _validate
    raise WrongContainedType(errors)
WrongContainedType: [RequiredMissing(()),

Note the empty parens.  

Now if I introduce bad code I  get:
in _validate
    raise WrongContainedType(errors)
WrongContainedType: [RequiredMissing(()), SchemaNotProvided(())]

SchemaNotProvided is correct.  Though there isn't much else to go on but
the full traceback points me to the right place.



I think that so much of this is no longer useful.

Right not now I'll go back and read all the obscure documentation (for
the upteenth time) and see if it makes more sense now.

I am very confused about thee use cases between creating Fields and
using the Object(schema=Ischema) approach.

Thanks for your help.
