        This base class provides your product with the basics needed to
        work with the Zope management interface.  By inheriting from
        'Item' your product class gains a whole host of features: the
        ability to be cut and pasted, capability with management views,
        WebDAV support, basic FTP support, undo support, ownership
        support, and traversal controls.  It also gives you some
        standard methods for management views and error display
        including 'manage_main()'.  You also get the 'getId()',
        'title_or_id()', 'title_and_id()' methods and the 'this()' DTML
        utility method. Finally this class gives your product basic
        *dtml-tree* tag support.
       'Item' is really an
        everything-but-the-kitchen-sink kind of base class.
