Well.. unfortunately, this isn't straight CGI nor Perl, and the URI
namespace never "ends" in Zope.  The way to pass args to DTML methods is
via a form post or via a link with a query string (or a form get).  The
publisher "eats up" the rest of the URL and returns a Not Found error if
you try to tack on indiscriminate things after a method name.  Sorry.
Your option is to write a custom object that handles this via

I'm still not sure why you can't just do:

<a href="my/method?a=1">1</a>

as opposed to:

<a href="my/method/1">1</a>

I would search the mail archives for __bobo_traverse__ if you want to
know more.  I'm not even sure if Zope exposes PATH_INFO in REQUEST.  It
might.  I doubt it would help if it did, however.
