Zope REQUEST question

Okay, this is a little tricky to explain. This is technically a Zope
question, but it has to do with programming products in Python.
I'm doing a Forbidden Thing with a Zope product, which is overloading its
__getattr__ function. It's a necessary Evil, though. ;-)
And actually, it works really well, as far as it goes. It *is* a nightmare
to debug, which is why I've moved nearly all of the code out of this part
so it can be tested independently.
Anyway, it turns out, I need to be able to access the REQUEST object
from there (I'm trying to implement an HTTP_REFERER block).
So far, I've tried:
which should do the same thing, except the ObjectManager.__getattr__
is much safer (it's not recursive). I'm not sure why I thought that REQUEST
would be an attribute of the object at this point, but I'm pretty sure I
read this somewhere and didn't just think it up out of thin air. However,
in this case at least, it's wrong -- these both give me attribute errors
(at least my object returns "not found" which is what happens when you
raise an attribute error from inside of __getattr__ -- other errors usually
give you the traceback you'd normally expect).
Does anyone have a better idea for how to get the REQUEST?
