This wouldn't work very well for two reasons:
1. Sites like ours use a mix of DTML, Python Scripts and other things. It
would make some sense to map the DTML method register_user to
register_user.html but the Python Script would want to be
2. The object on a Zope site already contain type information that can
and should be leveraged for outgoing access.
My first cut suggestion would be to implement a separate outgoing mapping
table driven by the object's meta-type attribute (with provision for
CMF to override this to use it's different notion of type).
