Okay, now it starts to make sense...

And I agree that the traversal stuff needs to handle this properly...

My take on it is this:

The URL is not the same as the path to the object. 

The path to the object should be unique, and always rooted at Zope's
root, I don't think the Traversal Interface is strong enough on this
point yet...

Mapped to this path could be any number of ways of accessing/exposing
objects which don't necessarily start at Zope's root.

Take HTTP access through apache virtual hosting for example.

Or exposing a sub-tree as files through FTP or WebDAV.

Is this true or am I missing something?
