The module is a full website. It started way back when as a Bobo app
and I've never learned of a good way to bring it into managed zope
land. It's remained a ZPublisher app. Believe me, I know I'm not
mainstream with this. Would like to bring it mainstream but
practically speaking have to do it a bit at a time.

My URLs do not all start with a / -- some are relative to current
location. Are you saying that if I change them all to be absolute
paths for the site it will work? Not the greatest practice but I'm
looking for practical solutions.
