What is the purpose of myInstance._setId(id)? Is it necessary? In
SimpleItem, it doesn't anything but self.__name__=id.
Most products don't use _setId, the Developers Guide doesn't
even mention it, but just contains the IMHO somewhat cryptic
sentence about OFS.SimpleItem:
id or __name__
All Item instances must have an id string attribute
which uniquely identifies the instance within it's
container. As an alternative you may use
__name__ instead of id.
Now _setObject in ObjectManager already adds a string attribute
named "id". So in fact _setId seems redundant and should be
eleminated from the API.
