no, i think you did well understand the problem. But I do not use ZSQL
methods, and I am getting a list of tuples, as I said. And these are not
so easily dereferenced (cause there are no names ... :-)

Up to now I came up with the following solution:
	<dtml-call "REQUEST.set('something', sequence-item)">
Which I can dereference as
	<dtml-var "something[x]">

I don't see another way. But you can tell me in which way I can access a
ZMySQLDatabaseconnection from within my own product, if this is not too
much a thing (I stole code from ZSQLMethod and fiddled it until I could
drop pure SQL queries the form SQL.query("..."))

Thanks anyway and greetings,
