Did this accessor thing evolve from another discussion?  It seemed to 
pop up out of thin air in this thread.

Is this what I hope it means?  If it is, then I hope to see classes like 
Request, Session, Context, etc. be modified to implement the interface.  
To me, this would mean that they implement a static get method that 
returns the appropriate instance of the object.  Perhaps a better name 
for this would be Accessible.  I guess your plan is to implement a 
separate Accessor class to do this instead?
