First of all, don't use macros that much.

We have the zope.contentprovider and zope.viewlet package that provides a lot 
more flexibility and is much more Zope-3-ish. I think some people have 
written tutorials how to use it effectively.

As a side note: I believe that anyone who builds Zope 3 applications without 
using those two packages is fool and makes his life much harder than it could 
be. :-)
