In python its even easier, and depends what you are doing.
Basically you want to get a handle to another object so you can do something
along the lines of

obj = self.container1.containter1a.item1
result = obj.mymethod()

there are many funky variations on that of course. There's also interfaces
such as REQUEST.resolve_url, _getOb, getItem that you may want to look into.
