Well, the MessageDetails class is used as a mix-in into a
BrowserViewClass. The browser views init does:

    def __init__(self, context, request):
        self.context = context
        self.request = request

Request is created by the publisher, and context is the object which is viewed.

Yup, that's pretty much it.
