One thing that I think is missing from our discussion about ZCL. Do we
assume that the reader has already known about the "administration" part
of Zope ? How about the knowledge about what a folder is, what is a
properties, how to set them up, etc. The non "direct-coding" part.
Should we rely that on the Zope Administrator Guide ? What is a
folderish object ? What's a folder ?

These are especially important when we are talking about the Zope

Currently, for my DTML-Var part, the examples has always used full
qualified variable call (REQUEST.form[..etc), and with a special
treatment with examples on the naming lookup/context (limited to the
REQUEST variables) -- and point to the context/chapters for more
and one section explaining the ways to set up "LOCAL VARIABLES" in DTML.
