I didn't really specify here in my goal but I was describing
complication in usage and in implementation.  It took me quite a while
longer to understand what goes where and what adapter uses this (this
complication tends to be a known aspect of zope3) with the plip.
Compare that with "make a zpt called portlet_fetcher that checks the
properties and loads appropriate macros" and it seems a lot more

Of course I'm well aware of the fact that the previous approach wasn't
testable all that jazz so I do understand the virtue in the new
approach.  So in my mind this was a necessary complication.
