Rowan,
   Can you try inheriting from dtml-document instead of simple-item? I use
dtml document as much as I can. It is a big object but you almost always
need to call a dtml object anyway. And all the methods are already battle
tested. (BTW, for me zope is almost entirely the model, and the view and
most of the controller are in the browser so I am not as concerned about
mixing content with logic inside zope. ymmv)

dtml-tree is cool but it can be flakey
