The second arument is like the second argument in dictx.get(...), it  
what the adaption should return if it can't find any matches during  
lookup. So
you can say IHome(cave, None) if you want to return None instead of  
a component lookup error.

This however should work:

     >>> home = IHome((cave, fireplace))

Well, you do specify the interface, that's why you write IHome(...).
