You can rewrap an object (in external code) using the __of__ method provided 
by the acquisition mix-in classes. For example:

unwrapped = ob.aq_base
rewrapped = unwrapped.__of__(new_aq_parent)

rewrapped will then be the object (ob) with new_aq_parent as its acquisition 

So probably in your case you could do:

new_wrapper = 

Which would insert the unwrapped object in the aq chain between the wrapped 
object and its current aq parent.

new_wrapper would then acquire from unwrapped_ob as well as its original
