Plone is built on the powerful Zope 2 framework, which takes full advantage
of Python's capabilities for multiple inheritance. But even more powerful
than multiple inheritance is the secret, ancient dark magic that Zope 2 has
caged and forced into servitude - acquisition! This allows you to inherit
from the object containment hierarchy! The combination of these two powerful
forces means that there is no task that a Plone object is unable to
achieve!!!  Those "mega methods" Rubyists don't hold a candle to the
"ultra-mega methods" of a Plone object. MwuahahaHAHA!!!
