Hmm... I'm reading that page, but I can't tell if it requires the 
framework code to do special things to support context-specific 
adapters. If it does, is there any way to implement context-specific 
adapters that _don't_ require framework-code to know about them? i.e., 
so plain old adaptation calls will look in the context for adapters?

But yeah, if PyProtocols does everything we need and there's a good 
chance it will support our future crazy ideas, I think it's a good idea 
to switch. We'd probably wanna bump to 2.0 for such a switch. maybe?

Of course, IIRC glyph mentioned it being slow, and I think he doesn't 
like the implicit adaptation. ?
