      External methods are often useful as an "escape hatch" when
      Zope's security policy prevents you from using a Script (Python)
      or DTML to do a particular job that requires more access than is
      "safe" in through-the-web-editable scripts.  For example, a
      Script (Python) cannot write to files on your server's
      filesystem, while an External Method may.

         Is this not a huge security issue?
