> Using add views instead of folder_factories for creating content makes

> items are usually represented by 'actions'.
> Type infos already define most data required for actions:
> - 'id': can be reused
> - 'title': can be reused; if we want action titles like 'Add File ...'
> instead of 'File' we can change that in the template
> - 'description': has already the same purpose as in actions
> - 'icon': 'content_icon' is a path relative to the site root, but we can
> use the same icon and compute the required absolute path
> - 'available': can be computed using allowType of the container
> - 'allowed': can be computed using isConstructionAllowed
> Missing are these properties:
> - 'category': can be hardcoded, e.g. as 'folder/add'
> - 'url': requires a new type info property, I propose to use 'url_expr'
> to keep it in sync with normal Action objects
> - 'visible': can be hardcoded as True
> So instead of adding separate 'add' actions we can extend the type info
> classes, making them implement IAction as well.
> listActions of the types tool would include type infos if they provide
> IAction *and* have an url specified.
> As always, feedback is welcome.
+1. Seems a simple, straighforward extension, with zero BBB problems.
