[Zope] help with __bobo_traverse__

Newbie here.

I am writing a Product called YSPanel. I installed on the root folder.

I have a published method called: viewDomain, which simply displays the 
REQUEST dict for now. I can call it fine through: 

Now I'd like the same method to be called to handle a URL like:


So I added this to my class:

def __bobo_traverse__(self,REQUEST=None,NAME=None):
      if NAME == 'foobar':
	#gettattr_str = str(getattr(self, 'viewDomain'))
	#self_str = str(self)
	#err_str = "gettattr_str:%s \n self_str:%s"%(gettattr_str,self_str)
	#raise 'Ooops', err_str
	return getattr(self, 'viewDomain')
           # probably from unrestrictedTraverse
           return getattr(self, NAME)

When try it I get:

Zope has encountered a problem publishing your object.
Cannot locate object at:

Note when I uncomment my debugging lines above, I get what seems correct:

gettattr_str:	<bound method YSPanel.viewDomain of <YSPanel at /yspanel>>
self_str:		<YSPanel at yspanel>

What am I missing here?

What is the right way to handle variables passed via PATH_INFO?

Thanks a lot.
