Oops--thanks for pointing that out.  I sometimes wonder, however, why
it was set up this way.  Except for speed concerns, I see no reason
why, if we set up the algorithm a different way, it couldn't search
from right to left.  A simple approach would be like this:

def findattr(obj, name):
  while (obj is not None):
    base = getattr(obj, 'aq_base', obj)
    if hasattr(base, name):
      return getattr(obj, name)
    obj = getattr(obj, 'aq_parent', None)
  raise AttributeError, name

Of course, Jim would probably look at my example and want to hit me. 
He likes things to be optimized.  :-)
