[ZPT] Nested Repeats

I got a python dictionary which can contain python-lists and other
dictionaries and so on...

a = [ {name:'Level1', subitems:[
            {name:'Item1', prop1:1, prop2:2} ,
            {'name':'Item2', prop1:3}
            {name:'Level11', subitems:[ .... ] ] ,
      ...... ]

In zope I want to display something like this:
 - Item1      
 - Item2      
 - Level 11   
    - Item 111
    - Item 112
 - Level 12   
    - Item 111
    - Item 112
    - Level X 
       -Item X

The problem is that I don't know how much nested levels I got.
In python I would write a script that calls itself:
(I've not tested this example, it's just to demonstrate the
 concept that I would use in python!)

def printAllLevels(listItems):
  for listItem in listItems:
    print listItems['name']
    if listItem[name][:5]='Level':

Can I do something like that with ZPT's? I was thinking of making
a macro which can call itself. But than I don't know how to parse
a variable to a macro...

Has anybody got a suggestion of how I can do this???

Thanks in advance!
