Like the others I'm quite fond of this idea too.

This would actually mean, we do not need to supply a url() method on 
viewlet(managers) after all, because you have easy access to the view 
and thus you can easily (and completely similar to "normal" views) call 
view.url() in your template.

This would 1) result in less code to maintain, 2) opening up the 
possibility to create at some point in time a viewlet.url() that 
constructs the URL to the individual viewlet.
