I saw Philip W. do a working prototype of this at the PyCon Dallas

I don't know if anything happened with this after PyCon,
and it would need at least some UI work. 

If the UI is to integrate with the CMF skins tool, I suspect there will
need to be a thin layer of CMF-specific UI written as well.  IIRC,
Philip's prototype just dumped the templates into the Zope root, or
maybe into the current folder, I forget.
