  At first I was a little confused by your answer, since I'm just 
beginning to grasp the zca concepts, but this was actually pretty 
straightforward, thanks!


import grok
from zope import interface

class IObjectProvidesAdapter(interface.Interface):
     object_provides = interface.Attribute("Provided interfaces")

class ObjectProvidesAdapter(grok.Adapter):

     def object_provides(self):
         return [i.__identifier__ for i in 

class ObjectProvidesIndex(grok.Indexes):
     object_provides = index.Text()
