Because you were visiting the topic's default view
('topic_view'), with the REQUEST populated with a form variable,
'Subject', set to 'something.  Because you reached 'list' via URL
traversal, ZPublisher is helping out by finding some appropriate
default method to call on it.

Right -- signature is name of the function, plus arguments and
return type.  In this case, since 'list' is not callable, I'm
surprised you didn't get a TypeError.
