The namespace just reflects the attributes of the current object, plus
whatever other tags push onto that stack (such as the in tag, which pushes
the current element of the list it iterates over on top).

If you retrieve the 'this' method from the stack, and call it, it'll
return the topmost object on the stack. It is implemented in

    def this(self):
        # Handy way to talk to ourselves in document templates.
        return self
