[Grok-dev] Viewlet document for layouts

Thank's for putting the effort into writing the howto. I am however a  
real bone head.

Is this really a revolutionary new way of doing things, or just a  
different way?

I am really having difficulties understanding what the huge practical  
benefit is, but it sure raises the bar for a newbie who wants to  
understand how to create "proper" Grok apps.

I was hoping for the ViewletManager to contain some hooks where you  
could dynamically assemble the page. Then I was hoping for a magic way  
of doing theming.

I would have settled for a beautiful way of including subforms in the  
page, if this wasn't just as easy to do with macros and views.

As I said earlier, I am probably missing something, but so far this  
looks like "same, same..." to me.

Mvh Sebastian
