Do something like this:

     class Process(binding.Component):
         fileURL = binding.Require("URL needed", adaptTo=naming.IStreamFactory)
         file = binding.Obtain(naming.Indirect('fileURL'))

And make the 'attribute' for 'file' be 'fileURL' instead.

'naming.Indirect("some_name")' translates to, "use the object you find at 
'some_name' as a name to look up".
