Hi, Curtis...


You're right for the word "method"... But that's in fact why they are
not called "methods" anymore ! :-))

Don't blame Python Script team : it's a non-trivial problem, both for
security and... feasibility reasons !

I don't know wether it actually works for Python Methods, but you should
try to pass your environment, just as you would for DTML Methods, like
this :

<dtml-var "MyPythonMethod (_.None, _)">


And then you should gain access to Zope environment. But remember this
is not elegant and may lead you to security problems.



Regards,


P.-J.
