[Zope] Namespace problem with folders starting with numbers

Ok.  Sorry to jump to quickly on that one; I am partially wrong.  

<dmtl-var expr="_['2000'].id"> will work; so will <dtml-in
expr="_['2000'].objectValues()"> (returns a sequence).

However, in the case of something like this:
<dtml-var expr="_['5000']._['5100'].id">

Zope has some security/permissions issue with that (when I try to run a
method with code like this as a manager, I get a basic auth box?).  I assume
that the workaround would have to be using dtml-with one namespace at a

That is, unless someone has a better way to do this.

<dtml-var expr="folder1._['2000']...

etc to reference an object with an id; should work, though I think this only
works in an expr within dtml-var and not name=...

I need to retrieve a property nested at a document placed within folders
names start with numbers. Like this:

<dtml-var "folder1.2000.12345.dtmldoc.this_property">

This sintax is invalid because there are object names that are starting with
numbers, within the Python expression. 

Is there a workaround? (I've tried the usual ones, unsuccessfully).
