In this particular example, python's email package has a very OO
approach to generating emails.
The DTML approach relies on you remembering to put in the right
statements for the right constituent email parts in the right places.
It's easy to make mistakes and generate emails that won't work with most
It's also harder to generate emails with the correct headers (Date,
Message-ID, etc) than it should be, so you're more likely to pump out
email that mtas consider to be spam.
The DTML approach also makes attaching files a living hell...
