My tests were blowing up until I (pdbed through the checker) and added 
an adapter to zope.app.securitypolicy.interfaces.IPrincipalRoleMap from

     return IPrincipalRoleMap(controller.context)


Am I missing something elsewhere or are local roles not being applied by 
default to REST views (grok 0.11.1)?
