Another option is that the object at /articles could be an instance
of a class that looks something like:

class MyArticleContainer():

    def __before_publishing_traverse__(self, unused, request):
        # Save the rest of the path as 'traverse_subpath'.
        # Tell the publisher to stop traversing now.
        request['TraversalRequestNameStack'][:] = []

    def __call__(self, *args, **kw):
        subpath = self.REQUEST['traverse_subpath']
        data = get_data_however_you_like(subpath)
        return data

For background, read the stuff about traversal hooks at
