um, not to be nitpicking, but if you'd want to know the number of objects
with a certain meta-type in a folder, the following is a bit shorter and
saves you an iteration:

 <untested>

<dtml-call "REQUEST.set('counter', _.len(objectValues(['DTML Document'])">
This folder (<dtml-var title_or_id) has <dtml-var counter>
 number of objects with the meta type DTML Document.

<dtml-let counter="_.len(objectValues(['DTML Document'])">
   This folder (<dtml-var title_or_id) has <dtml-var counter>
   number of objects with the meta type DTML Document.
</dtml-let>

</untested> not entirely sure of the dtml-let syntax, but you get the idea
