The general solution: "computed attribute access"

    "_.getattr(<object>,<expression evaluating to attribute name>)"

This general solution will give you a monstrous expression....

Folders expose their content through subscription (and through attributes).
This means, you can use:

     "<folder>[<expression evaluation to the content item name>]"

That is quite readable.

Finally, you can use "restrictedTraverses".
