This is easy for me to say, since I won't be doing it. :)

Because this recent fix actually fixed the same problem that the
previous hot fix was supposed to fix, I think someone needs to
work up
some decent tests.  This is not a trivial task, bit it is
necessary.  If
no one is willing to do this, I think we need to drop the TTW
reStructuredText support from Zope 2, as it is too great a risk.

Dropping TTW reST is absolutely not an option. I breaks backward
Sorry, security trumps backward compatibility.

BTW, I suspect that a less violent patch could be created, if
anyone wants to champion TTW reStructuedText support in
Zope 2.  Personally, I'm for dropping it.
Tres' patch is looking in fine to me. I don't see a need right now
for dropping reST with having file inclusing *removed*.
Has anyone written tests for Tres' patch?  Apparently no one wrote
adequate tests for the last hot fix, which helped put us in this
I've written some tests (checked in on the trunk). They test the 'raw'
and 'include' directives

Great!  Maybe we can add a similar set for the 'fmt="restructured-text"'
in DTML.

@Tres: what is the reason to keep the 'raw' code in docutils? I am in favor
to remove it and replace it with a NotImplementedError exception (same
as for the the 'include' code). The related tests (for reStructredText
and ZReST are commented for now) do except a NotImplementedError for a
'raw' directive.

'raw' can be used to disable ReST processing for a block, even if the
':file:' or ':url:' options aren't set.;  I was trying to leave the
possibility of that use case.

Isn't that leaving the door open for XSS (cross-site scripting) attacks? Allowing arbitrary raw HTML to be input allows javascript in the pages, and therefore cookie stealing.
