    Aquisition is not limited to searching a containment hierarchy: it
    can also search a *context hierarchy*.  Acquisition by context is
    terribly difficult to explain, and you should avoid it if
    possible.  However, if you want more information about aquiring
    via a context and you are ready to have your brain explode, please
    see the presentation named "Acquisition

       The description of class inheritance earlier was useful, but this should tie it into the concept of
       aquisition a bit more. It would appear (I think?) that a class is created for each unique object at each
       level of the containment hierarchy and that aquisition is really just glorified subclassing. Some additional
       explanation of how these directly correspond might be helpful. For instance, the earlier text makes a point
       of describing python's multiple inheritance rules; how are those relevant for aquisition?
