    Inheritance stipulates that an object can learn about its behavior
    from its superclasses via an *inheritance hierarchy*.
    *Acquisition*, on the other hand, stipulates that an object can
    additionally learn about its behavior its through its *containment
    hierarchy*.  In Zope, an object's inheritance hierarchy is always
    searched for behavior before its acquisition hierarchy.  If the
    method or attribute is not found in the object's inheritance
    hierarchy, the acquisition hierarchy is searched.
