[Zope-CMF] Workflowable folders & traversing issues

I would like to have folders (and/or folder-ish content, if you prefer), fully wokflowable.

That is, when a folder is set private, it shouldn't be traversable, and nothing under it should be accessible to anonymous users (assuming your standard workflow persmissions).  As it stands this isn't the case, and folders are not workflowed.

I've looked at using __boob_traverse__ on my Folder class, but that seems to mess with the security context, as I suddenly start getting unauthorized errors with something like:

    def __bobo_traverse__(self, REQUEST, name=None):
        print 'GOT HERE'
        return getattr(self, name, self)

(Specifically, I can't access properties() on the Folder instance for example?)

I've looksed at using the registerBeforeTraverse & friends hooks, but those rely on *calling the object* as fas I know (With NameCaller), and I'm not sure overriding __call__ on my Folder class would be such a good idea.

I imagine this has been done before?  Any thoughts/ideas/solutions?  Oh and I didn't see any permission setting that seem to control this also ... that would be ideal of course :)
