Yeah, both Philipp and I are aware of this. :) Zope 3 can't start
following PEP 8 any time soon though, as it has tons of camelCase
methods and it would really be confusing if we suddenly started
introducing under_score_methods() in existing classes and modules.
Since Grok in some cases subclasses things in Zope 3, we figure
consistency might be better here than following PEP 8.
