 Unfortunately there are a lot of things that Zope just can't do because
 there is no way to get a persistent "ticket" for an object that can be
 handed out to some external system, and then later redeemed for the
 (properly wrapped) object. Pathnames are not useful, because they don't
 last for the object's lifetime.

Hmmm ... what you describe sounds a lot like an ILU "string 
binding handle" -- see

http://www-db.stanford.edu/~testbed/ilu/ilu20doc/manual_1.html#SEC10

ILU does have a Python binding, and I've been thinking that ILU 
and Zope might have a lot of potential if used together ... it 
could make Zope "multi-lingual"  :^)  Has anyone thought of 
doing anything with the two together?

  But if you really want to use
  Tame Snake Thingy, and
  Wild Snake Thingy,
  go ahead, but please do not credit me in the documentation!

 Documents, Templates and Scripts
 or
 Documents, Templates and Methods

I REALLY like Thingy!  And a very Pythonesque choice it would 
be ... :^)  Python Thingies and Perl Thingies.  How nice to be 
so connotationless!  ... but maybe not so connotationless ... 
recalling the usage of "thingy" in the Python, Monty oeuvre 
("YOU know ... THINGY!!") ... you might want to consider

Tame Snake Sex, and 
Wild Snake Sex, 

so then you have 
Documents, Templates, and Sex

Python Sex vs. Perl Sex? ... wow, just think of it!  
Of course, alibis about working late would have to be 
carefully worded ...

Sorry ... it's late on a Friday ... but I DO like Thingy!  :^)
