Thanks for replying, and sorry for getting so long to get back to 
your answer. Had a fun week recovering from a hack attack.

Ok, so DTMLFile.absolute_url() should return its container. Except... 
DTMLFiles simply don't have absolute_url - their own or inherited. 
They return an attribute error.

I was going to post a feature request to the collector, but if 
absolute_url on a DTMLFile will return the container, then it's 
pretty useless.
