[Zope-CMF] [dev] tools as utilities

5 years ago we started converting CMF tools into local utilities, and we 
are still stuck in the middle of that task.

The problem is that local utilities don't have REQUEST in their 
acquisition chain. A few tool methods use self.REQUEST and the plan was 
to replace these methods by view code. But that never happened. So these 
tools and all tools depending on these tools are still not converted.

I propose to use 'five.globalrequest' instead of self.REQUEST inside 
tools. AFAICS that allows to convert *all* tools into utilities.

What do you think?
