Sorry, I was wrong, at least partially!
The fact, that "ZopeTime" returns an unprotected DateTime object,
does of cause not mean that "ZopeTime" itself is unprotected.
After your message, I reexamined your problem:
* "ZopeTime" is defined in "OFS.Application.Application",
i.e. the top level application object.
* "ZopeTime" apparently is not protected by an explicit
permission (neither mentioned in an "__ac_permissions__"
nor is there a "ZopeTime__roles__" attribute nor
is there a new SecurityManager assertion about
As I understand Zope 2.2 security, this should mean
"ZopeTime" is inaccessible from DTML.
* However, magically, "ZopeTime" is protected by "Access Contents
