I'm not sure if I understood your problem.

But why don't you return the `entire' object ?!
return obj
and you will use as you want in DTML

You can also call
return obj.__dict__.values()
is a list, but order or the values is unpredictable (I think) 


"Will I be using Python today?"
 and if the answer is "yes"
 I know that it's going to be a good day.
