The collection portlet is just that. Once you go down that road I would
prefer a more general approach where we introduce the concept of
context-based rendering, or tile-based rendering as some people call it.
Basically the idea is that you want to render a particular object in
different kinds of places/sizes: portlets, collage slots, main page
body, reference, etc. This is something that I requested more and more
often and it makes sense to try and come up with a proper infrastructure
for handling it.
