The Zope way would be to consider this beforehand by splitting the
URLs into a part that may change over time and a part that is more
constant. The changing part of your URL should then be a variable
somewhere on top of the hierarchy, and the complete URL can then
be combined with the constant part further down the hierarchy.

Perhaps you can motivate your students by telling them that they only
have to do this one more time ;-)
