if its parent (or one of its parent's parents, etc.) is an

Return a generator representing the :term:`lineage` of the
:term:`resource` object implied by the ``resource`` argument. The
generator first returns ``resource`` unconditionally. Then, if
``resource`` supplies a ``__parent__`` attribute, return the resource
represented by ``resource.__parent__``. If *that* resource has a
``__parent__`` attribute, return that resource's parent, and so on,
until the resource being inspected either has no ``__parent__``
attribute or which has a ``__parent__`` attribute of ``None``.
For example, if the resource tree is::
thing1 = Thing()
thing2 = Thing()
thing2.__parent__ = thing1
Calling ``lineage(thing2)`` will return a generator. When we turn
it into a list, we will get::
list(lineage(thing2))
[ <Thing object at thing2>, <Thing object at thing1> ]

# The common case is that the AttributeError exception below
# is exceptional as long as the developer is a "good citizen"
# who has a root object with a __parent__ of None. Using an
# exception here instead of a getattr with a default is an
# important micro-optimization, because this function is
# called in any non-trivial application over and over again to
# generate URLs and paths.
