Okay, well __conform__ is for an object to implement adaptation.  That is, 
if object 'x' has a __conform__ attribute, then 'IFoo(x)' will first call 
'x.__conform__(IFoo)', and if a non-None object is returned, that's what 
will be used as the result of 'IFoo(x)'.

Is that anything at all like what getComponent() does?
