Andy - looking up 'this' in a dtml method or document won't work
unless you expose it in your python product/tag definition.  I'm
talking about getting 'this' inside a dtml tag that I have defined
myself (i.e. <dtml-foobar></dtml-foobar>).  If you want 'this'
available in dtml, write an external method and just return 'self'
def this(self): return self
