I think you answered your own question.  ;)

Just one quibble.  Given a page::


you can then access python methods defined by that zope object like::


I don't think you can chain two methods.  But this isn't really
important since you can use::





Let me point out the new plugin system that Simon Michael has
implemented for zwiki.  See plugins/ in the zwiki source tree.  (maybe
only in darcs)  One can create a plugin class with the methods you
desire (tangle, tangle_axiom, etc), that get inherited by ZWikiPage and
thus would work with any ZWiki Page.
