Agreement on this, at least.

It's the second line that gets me - it's not consistent to have "edit" on  
the one hand and "folderContents" on the other referring to the *same*  
thing. I would prefer:

object/edit -> @@contents.html
folder/folderContents -> @@contents.html

I agree with this technically I just don't think it corresponds to most  
user expectation as in my objection above. My suggestion would essentially  
leave things as they but invite a customised edit view for anyone so  
inclined. And I also know that this is hair-splitting of the finest art.  
But, over the last few years that I've been working with the CMF, I've  
come to view it as an excellent reference for what you can do with Zope  
without frying your brain.

This would still be possible, of course.
