What this does is set a key/value pair in the REQUEST variable (Which is a sort of python dictionary, just with extra smarts).
DTML will not let you do <dtml-call "REQUEST['record_ids']=0"> for security reasons, so the REQUEST variable has the .set method which performs the same function.
Hope this helps
