A comment to the paragraph below was recently added via http://www.zope.org/Documentation/Books/ZopeBook/current/ScriptingZope.stx#3-13
Zope breaks apart the URL and compares it to the object
hierarchy, working backwards until it finds a match for each
part. This process is called *URL traversal*. For example, when
you give Zope the URL *Zoo/LargeAnimals/hippo/feed*, it starts
at the root folder and looks for an object named *Zoo*. It then
moves to the *Zoo* folder and looks for an object named
*LargeAnimals*. It moves to the *LargeAnimals* folder and looks
for an object named *hippo*. It moves to the *hippo* object and
looks for an object named *feed*. The *feed* script can't be
found in the *hippo* object and is located in the *Zoo* folder
by a process called *acquisition*.
