I'd say it's a bug.
No it's not.
The Zope3 request has the locale attribute, but the Zope2 request
Right. Who ever said that the Zope 2 request is compatible with the Zope
We can't even just make the Zope 2 request have that attribute because
of potential backward incompatibilities. Why? Because you can do
request.locale in Zope 2 right now which is an equivalent spelling of
request['locale'] (it looks up request variables). If existing
applications use the attribute access instead of the item access (which
should clearly be the preferred way, but there's lots of Zope 2 legacy),
they would break because request.locale would now find something else.
It's not a bug. It's Zope 2's obscenity with __getattr__ APIs instead of
__getitem__ APIs that's preventing the harmonizing of the two
implementations, that's all. Both the ObjectManager and the request are
very good examples of how Zope 2 got this wrong, but Zope 3 got it right.
