      The second use for this is rather deep. It provides a way to
      acquire an object without getting the full context that it was
      acquired from.  This is useful, for example, in cases where
      you are in a method of a non-item subobject of an item and you
      need to get the item outside of the context of the subobject.

         What does this last sentence even mean?  What is the difference between an item and a non-item?
