hi guys,

i've been doing some work with iterate for a project here and wanted  
to report back, as some of the issues raised here came up for me,  
too. for compatability reasons i've been working with the `0.3- 
plone-2.1-2.5` branch, but kapil has already incorporated some of my  
fixes  into trunk.

there is still one issue that needs to be addressed IMHO. i've also  
filed an issue for that:

basically, it means that references to children of an iterated  
folderish object are broken after that object is iterated. kapil has  
postponed that issue and i can understand that that's a really tough  
cookie to solve generically but this somehow needs to be addressed if  
we want to ship plone with iterate! if we can't fix the issue we  
should at least prevent a COCI-cycle for folderish objects that  
contain children with backreferences. any other suggestions?

other than that iterate has been great fun to work and play with! i  
found its code to be very clean and and readable and has otherwise  
proven rocksolid here. if the above issue is addressed i absolutely  
recommend its inclusion in 3.0
