Well, I've slept on it, and since Genshi is all about having
unrestricted power and full access t python and other things, I see no
need for a restricted version, even though that was what people
recommended here before.

I mean, it's unrestricted python. You can anyway probably do something like

<?python from zope.app.traversing import traverse ?>
<html><body>${traverse(context, 'whetever/path/you/want')}</body></html>

So why make it easy for people to shoot themselves in the foot in
every way possible except by easy traversal? :-) I'm all for a path
method in Genshi.
