[Zope] Using the DTML REQUEST Object

Dear Exalted Sirs and Madams,

I'm a Zope newbie, so be gentle.

I'm using DTML on Zope (yes I know Plone and Tal is now the norm) and
I was wondering if regularly using the REQUEST(set and get) object is
bad practice.

I'm mostly a C++ programmer and I know of the horrors of global
variables, but I was wondering if there was any way to pass
information from DTML Documents to DTML Methods and vice versa (and
maybe from DTML Methods to DTML Methods) without using the REQUEST

Thanks and take care,
Muk Yan
