'root' is probably a misprint. If you're using the bin/zopectl
script that comes with zope 2.7.x, you should substitute 'app'
instead of 'root'.

'/path/to/container' is a generic example.
Substitute the path to any container you're interested in. The author 
of the recipe cannot predict what paths are of interest to you.
Only you can know that.

Note, there is a shortcut to the above: you can just run the command 
./bin/zopectl debug

that's kind of unusual. Most Products have a more descriptive
Sounds like somebody wrote a subclass of OFS.Item.SimpleItem
and did not bother to provide a proper meta_type in their code.
Some grepping of source code in your Products directory might
tell you what this thing really is.

No, that would delete a sub-object of obj.  If you want to delete obj
itself, you have to find its parent folder first.
You have found out an id ('view'), a mod time ('2005/03/14 09:20:34.643 GMT+1'),
and a (weird) meta_type ('simple item').  That should give you some
good clues for finding where this object lives, and thus find its parent
folder.  Once you know that, you can follow the zopelabs recipe.

Unfortunately, there is no way to just ask a raw object for
its physical path. You can call obj.getPhysicalPath() 
but it not tell you anything useful on a raw object
(one directly loaded from _p_jar)  because it is lacking
its acquisition context.
