Yes... but you need to pass in the namespace object to call the method if
you call it explicitly with parameters:
<dtml-call "anothermethod(_.None, _)">
Are equivalent. See the "namespace howto" on Zope.org and the "advanced
dtml" howto. See also the Zope book (linked from the front page of

I believe this is also covered in the Zope book.

A user folder isn't really a folder in the sense that Folders are folders.
:-) It usually does not contain anything but users. One strategy for doing
what you wish is to create another container which contains subfolders, one
for each user, where they can store documents. An example of such a pattern
is the "PTK". (portal toolkit)
