any items in a url after python script name will be placed into REQUEST.
if there is a python script called 'ptst' in the folder 'folderx'
then the url: www.xyz.com/folderx/ptst/a/b/c
will result in the python script "ptst" being run and the following entry
will be in REQUEST:
traverse_subpath ['a', 'b', 'c']
