The ultimate example of using nevow is Quotient. Unfortunately, it's
probably not the easiest to follow. To orient you should you decide to
look at the code, all URLs are expressed in the form /me/123 where 123
is the unique identifier of an object in a database. The database is
'atop', an object database, so attempting to visit that page will load
the corresponding object from the DB. Then, an IResource adapter is
located for that object. So, you can look at any of the IResource
