can somebody please explain what's the difference between explicit
and implicit here, or provide a rtfm hint?

Note that this is *executable* ownership, about which few people care (except those that develop code-like objects). Read http://www.zope.org/Members/jim/ZopeSecurity/ServerSideTrojan for background.

Here the "implicit" or "explicit" executable ownership is just the fact that the _owner is acquired from the parent or explicitely set on the object.
