22.214.171.124 Defining a protocol as a local variation of another protocol
baseProtocol [, context=None])
New in version 0.9.1.
A Variation is a Protocol that "inherits" adapter declarations
from an existing protocol. When you create a Variation, it declares
that it is implied by its baseProtocol, and so any adpater suitable for
adapting to the base protocol is therefore suitable for the Variation.
This allows you to then declare adapters to the variation protocol, without
affecting those declared for the base protocol. In this way, you can have a
protocol object that represents the use of the base protocol in a particular
context. You can optionally specify that context via the context
argument, which will then serve as the context attribute of the
protocol. For more background on how this works and what it might be used for,
see section 1.1.10.
