You don't need the '__get__' attribute here unless it's going to be part of 
a URL path, btw.

This should do the trick for you.  I'm thinking about actually making this 
the default state, because the use cases for restricting *any* access to an

have no permissions declared.  For example, if you had a container that 
contained numbers or strings, you'd be able to access them just fine.  :)
