I'm not tied to the name 'before' nor am I tied to the current semantics
of 'render'. Some suggestions:
* could we employ the Zope 3 standard update/render technique in this? I
don't mean we *only* use this but perhaps we can use it as a foundation
to what we want.
* try implementing process/prepare and see how the Wiki and your Herd
example (for instance) are affected.
