   I used it for sometime, sure...

   Read and reread it many times, sure. Cannot live without it :) The thing
that I didn't understand from this (and the thing is still cloudy) is that
there is One Acquisition Path for a request. When I call a Method through
the web, I have proper path, so I can call Documents and Methods from each
other. But when I call a Document through the web, I have "wrong" path -
static path, and when I try to call a Method from the Document, the Method
will use this static path. I thought the Method will use dynamic path,
based on request (URL). That was my mistake.
