Hi Stephan!

The first option would work just fine for me indeed.

Out of curiosity though, I wonder about the second option:

I *think* to understand that for this option to work, 
z.a.publication.http.HTTPublication must be used for handling requests 
(instead of z.a.publication.browser.BrowserRequest), right?

And what publication implementation is used when, is in principle 
configured in zope/app/publication/configure.zcml, right?

But then I loose track of how things are tied together... How can I make 
sure this HTTPublication is used for one or more of the content types in 
my application? Maybe (probably) Schooltool does things different in 
this regard than 'stock' Zope-3?

But its quite possible that I'm asking stupid questions now, because I'm 
not sure I can see the forest through the trees anymore ;)

Anyway, thanks for your help!
