If you want real performance you might also consider changing some of 
the <tal:repeat> loops in <dtml-in loops> the change in performance is 

if you have a dtml-method called "body" and you want to call it from the 
zpt page you just add:

<span tal:replace="structure python:here.body(here,request)">body goes 

have fun,
and a fast site,
