Nice suggestion indeed. I just made a object to help out with this
issue, which seems to be very common. (Building listings of
content). It allows one to choose a header and footer for a listing,
what objects are going to be listed and from where they are coming
(container or catalog, later i will add pythonscript as an
option). And, for each portal_type you can say what macro you want to
use to render a single item. One nice feature to add here would be
search, which im trying to make generic without a speed penalty.
