This will not work as you expect!

     "__getattr__" is only called, when the normal lookup
     does not succeed.
     "Folder.__getattr__" is inherited from "Persistent"
     and will serve only very few attributes.
     For all others, you will get an "AttributeError", before
     you print anything.

     Furthermore, "__getattr__" takes only one (non-self)
     arguement. Your code above (with this strange "*args" code)
     will pass two. You will get a "TypeError" before you print

"Folder" implements the mapping interface only very partially.
It does not implement "has_key".

"__getitem__" is only called, when you explicitely use "instance[key]".
