I don't understand.
What is the difference between context.this(), context, and container ??

For going a folder up, I use container.aq_parent (has say in the
developpers guide).
But it should work only with acquisition wrappers, what made me suppose
that all the folders have an acquisition wrapper ???

I think this funcion should exist in the folder API, and it "surprises"
(still a newbie) to not find it in "ObjectManagerItem"
Class. In fact, I ask myself if getPhysicalRoot() is not for this purpose
(but reading the documentation it seems to refer to THE 'root' folder ???)
