BTW: This list if for development *of* Zope, the [EMAIL PROTECTED] list is
better for questions bout developing *with* Zope.

On to your question:

There is no automatic way in which DTML can do this for you. This is
simply because <dtml-var foo> doesn't tell Zope what foo is. Is it a
document or a script that returns something different every time it is
called or something else? In fact foo might different things at
different times, if you aquire the template into different contexts.

Anyhow, if you really want to set a Last-Modified header that reflects
the latest of a group of documents, you can write a python script that
accepts either a list of names or objects to test. For the latter here's
a Py script named "setLastModTime" with a single argument, "*objects":

last_mod = objects[0].bobobase_modification_time()
for ob in objects[1:]:
    last_mod = max(last_mod, ob.bobobase_modification_time())
context.REQUEST.RESPONSE.setHeader('Last-Modified', last_mod.rfc822())
return last_mod # for debugging purposes

Then from dtml:

<dtml-call expr="setLastModTime(this(), fooMethod, barDocument, ...)">
