Yeah, I haven't had much of a problem with acquisition links in google
results.  It's all intentional links that shouldn't be indexed, like
the printable, management, and editable pages.  The printable page
is a problem for many types of zope.org pages, too.

I don't think I've ever visited a wiki page that used acquisition
purposely, actually.
