It's more or less the same goal I want to achieve, but I thought I could
do the same with z3c.template (and the browser:viewlet directive).
Similar to the way z3c.template can be used to extract a snippet
(defined by a macro) from a page template for a pagelet.
But that may not be the case and that's why a package like
z3c.macroviewlet has been made.
