      DTML will not let you gobble up memory or execute infinite loops
      and recursions.  Because the restrictions on looping and memory
      use are relatively tight, DTML is not the right language for
      complex, expensive programming logic.  For example, you cannot
      create huge lists with the *_.range* utility function. You also
      have no way to access the filesystem directly in DTML.

         The _*_.range*_ function is a restricted version of the (python) range function.
