See Toby's comment ;-)

If you want to be able to do <dtml-var myFolderishThing> then you need
to subclass Folder and give it a __str__ or __call__ method. I'd love to
know what the difference is between these and which one you should
implement in a situation like this...

Any ideas anyone?

Actually, it's a big IOBtree stored in the data attribute of Squishdot
Site objects.

Each posting (and the site itself) has an intSet attribute called ids.
This says which postings are the object's children, even though they're
all stored in the same BTree..
