I've done a similar app where there's an archive of files (zope File 
objects) that I'm doing stuff with in another place.
I happily used::

  return self.unrestrictedTraverse(self.actual_path)

in a class that looks something like this::

class VirtualFile(SimpleItem):
     def __init__(self, id, actual_path):
         self.id = id
         self.actual_path = actual_path

      def _get_actual_object(self):
         """ return the real object this refers to """
         return self.unrestrictedTraverse(self.actual_path)

     def get_size(self):
         obj = self._get_actual_object()
         return obj.get_size()
