thanks for the pointer.  Your product sounds very cool, but you're right,
it's overkill for me, and in fact, not even an option as I am unable to
install new products on this zope server as I'm not the admin.  The best I
can do is an External Method, but I have to fight for them too.

You're the third person to suggest a product of some sort.  I'm quite
surprised; I thought this would be really easy with just a simple python
script or something similar.  I think I could achieve my goal using
standard_error_message if only I could figure out how to get hold of the
entire subpath (not just the first 'NotFound' object).
