    You can also fix the date formatting problems with a little
    Python. Create a script named 'file_date' in your 'FileLib'

      ## Script (Python) "file_date"
      Return modification date as string YYYY/MM/DD
      return "%s/%s/%s" % (date.year(), date.month(), date.day())

       The name of the Python script is file_date
       The script was called by passing the value item/file_date to the tal:content attribute
       Because of the way the script was called, the builtin object context now references item which references a
       bobobase_modification_time() is another standards built in method?

       date=context.bobobase_modification_time() calls this method on the file which is referenced by item which is
       referenced by context?
       The rest is just fancy formatting?

       Am I on the right track?
