##title=Check an id's validity
#
# Test an id to make sure it is valid.
#
# Returns an error message if the id is bad or None if the id is good.
#
# id - the id to check
# required - if required is 1, makes sure a suitable id has been supplied
# alternative_id - an alternative value to use for the id if the id is empty or autogenerated
#
# Note: the error messages here might cause some i18n headaches because they
# include the actual id.  The reason the id is included is to handle id error
# messages for such objects as files and images that supply an alternative id
# when an id is autogenerated.  If you say "There is already an item with this name
# in this folder" for an image that has the Name field populated with an autogenerated
# id, it can cause some confusion, since the real problem is the name of the image
# file name, not in the name of the autogenerated id.

    # main potential problem is an id collision, e.g. if portal_factory autogenerates
    # an id that already exists.

    # ok for a given object. For such a use case this is fine, but if we call
    # check_id BEFORE we add a new object with the folder to which we want to
    # add the new object as context, this does the wrong thing.
