Everything is more or less simple - when you invoke method by <dtml-var
meth1> - that "mapping" _ and "client" _.None are passed automagically :)

when you invoke method with explicit arguments like <dtml-var "meth1()">,
you have to pass those two explicitly like <dtml-var "meth1(_,_.None,...)">

details are here:

Subject: [Zope] The funny _.None,_ feature in DTML kind of question
