My guess is that you have a sort attribute on your dtml-in, which would touch 
everything in the sequence up front.

I'm not sure how (or why) you would wrap a class around an instance. In order 
to override methods on an instance by instance basis, you would most probably 
need to create a object proxy wrapper that override __getattr__ so that it 
can fire off the right methods.

If these methods are accessed TTW, then you could just use __bobo_traverse__ 
for this too.

Maybe restate the problem in a different way.
