This is the code on the branch:


There are two reasons why I don't like the new ISublocations adapter:

1.) ISublocations might be used for other purposes as well. Adding 
opaque items to the list returned by sublocations seems not to be in 
sync with the way the adapter is implemented in Zope 3.

2.) It relies on the fact that SimpleItem implements a dummy 
objectValues method.

But the more important issue is that currently no subscriber is used. 
Calling _recurseOpaques from handleObjectEvent *is* nasty and the XXX 
comment should be resolved.

So either someone has to compare those branches or the 
efge-1.5-five-compatible branch can be removed without looking at it again.
