Yeah I'll do what works for now and make a science project out of it one
rainy weekend.

Part of the problem could be the API for instantiation of folderish objects
and DTML objects.
A DTML method is created:

DTMLMethod(file, __name__=id).

A folder is

ob = Folder()
ob.id = str(id)

Or something like that. Its in my source somewhere with nasty comments
around it :)
