Hmm... what does it mean, exactly, to "traverse a DTML method"? DTML Methods
don't have subobjects, so it seems like you're basically trying to look up
other objects or information via information passed in the URL. That seems
like the kind of program logic that is much cleaner in python and that
people are trying to keep out of DTML. DTML really does start getting ugly
and hairy when you try to put complex logic in it.
