A 'call of nonfunction' type error, as far as thing to render is index_html

Anyway, I have tryied to do it in a whole lot of ways, when all I want to do is
to copy the behavier of <dtml-var "_.getitem(thing,1)">. Shouldn't be too hard,
I thought.
But I have no access to that function. Calling self.thing returns None, calling
self.aq_parent.thing returns an html_quoted version of the doument_src. The
real problem, come to think of it, is that if I call
self.aq_parent.thing.__call__() I get the thing, but with a key error for the
standard_html_header. So, I don't have access to the namespace? or the
aquisition engine doesn't work this way?

It's just too dinamic...I mean, we have an index_html on the root wich serves
everything and everyone. Then we have thematic areas with top and bottom bars
wich differ from each other, than there's the real info being queried wich
appears in the middle "frame", but all this without frames, with only a base
table structure on the root index_html.
Btw, data can change very rapidly, and so the cache was not to avoid charging
zope with the request load, but to avoid having to process the pages, wich are
rather complicated, everytime it gets requested. And we are getting 1000+ hits
per minute, so a one minute cache with a pre-rendered page for us would do
fine. We try to avoid external help on this.

We all had experience in developing with Apache/Perl or Apache/PHP3 and ok, it
works, it's fast and all that. But seriously, developing a portal without zope
just seems impossible now, knowing that what took me 1-2 weeks to develope
before can now be done in a days work, and all without mixing functional code
and aspect. Wow, we can even undo! Can't beat this, I'm afraid. :)
