But that would require you to have different view classes for
different template classes, so no, it still isn't the right place.

I would like to see another usecase before I make my mind up if this
is needed or not. Normally you make a grokker because you have a class
whose instances should all have something done to them. If that
grokker does something that not all subclasses want done, then either
the grokker is wrong, or you are using the subclass in a way that
wasn't intended, IMO.
