If you have something like that, wouldn't it be better, more readable,
etc, for it to be moved intop a python script, even if that script was
only 1 line long?

eg:
<dtml-if
"mysomething(_['title_or_id'],_.standard.html_quote(absolute_url()+_[id]))">

becomes:

<dtml-if mysomething_object_from_path_or_id>

That's a seperate issue and oen I'm sure I'll agree with once I start
using SkinScript ;-)

Hmmm... since they're both part of the Zope Core, does it make a lot of
difference where it's done?

cheers,
