Now, I may be missing the point of the fine grained access control of ZOPE, 
but knowing an objects ID is not at all the same as being able to access it, 
or even invoke it correctly.

The MS bug "allows access to any file on the webserver".  Whilst in ZOPE you 
may be able to enter the URL and invoke the object to some degree, unless you 
have the permissions to do whatever it does, what harm can you do? 

To me, this seems like more of a "patch by sensible admin" problem than a 
security hole.
