Yes so that we can stop the splurge of action like tools like Plone's 
Control Panel tool to do the same job. By allowing arbitrary attributes 
you extend any action anyway you like. Really an action is nothing more 
than a collection of values anyway.

My personal bug bear and I one we'll probably just implement anyway is:

- make actions FS based and overrideable in the ZODB (rather like the 
skins tool). This will make multiple instance deployments so much easier.

I know there is the portal setup tool that Tres has spoken about for 
Boston.com, but I'm just really not enjoying my ZODB configuration 
management as rants on many web sites :)
