Five will eventually get the "customize a template-based Zope 3 style 
view" story, but not before Five 1.6. In fact, to do this cleanly, some 
cleanup in Zope 3.4 would be nice (but not necessary). I plan to work on 
this at the Plone Conf sprints in Seattle, based on the experience and 
the prototype from the PyCON sprint.

You guys should probably not take this as a show stopper for CMF 2.1. 
I'm not at all into CMF development, but it seems most of the items from 
the roadmap have indeed not been completed. So how is CMF 2.1 different 
from CMF 2.0 now?

By the way, the roadmap has the Five version numbers wrong. See
