It's a partial step towards getting rid of a dependency that zope.intid has on 
zope.container.  I'm thinking that maybe that IContained interface belongs in 
some other package (e.g. maybe zope.contained).  That Container base class is.. 
uh.. not complicated, so even if we never do get rid of the zope.container 
dependency completely, it really doesn't harm anything to not use Contained. 
Unless you have some nostalgia for it. ;-)
