It sure looks a lot cleaner, thanks Rik.

Not sure.  Supposedly objectValues() returns "actual objects", and
I assumed that using sequence-item would be something closer to that.
<shrug>  The finer points of python are still lost on me, but I'm working
on it.

The bigger problem seems to be the namespace issue that Dieter was
speaking of.  When I tried your code, I got Attribute errors on
__getitem__.  It appears that Tree does not inherit the usual DMTL
namespace.  I've been looking at Tree trying to figure out how to add
it back in or somehow sneak my namespace into it, wondering what I'll
break in the process.  (But that's what makes Zope so interesting! 8-)
