This is an RFE for Zope 2.3.
I'm posting it here for discussion, rather than in the Collector.
In the new PythonScripts product (that is a standard part of Zope 2.3)
there is a standard utility module that can be imported into a Python
from Products.PythonScripts.standard import *
It contains useful functions such as those for text formatting
(html_quote, url_quote_plus, and so on). It also contains the DTML class
for creating temporary chunks of restricted DTML.
These functions would be really useful as part of the DTML _ namespace
variable. I sometimes find myself wanting to use html_quote in a DTML
expression. I'd also be able to use these functions from ZPatterns
The PythonScripts product could add these functions to the _ namespace
variable at product init time, so there would be no need to change the
