I don't think I ever got around to sending a proposal out on this one. 
This implementation gets rid of the need for _render_template by 
allowing the page template to be responsible for creating it's own 
namepace. It works like z3c.template. The bottom line is multiple 
templates can be plugged into a view class and call each other. I'm 
pretty sure though this has been superseded by the strong push for 
"push" templates.

Will do.
