I think this applies almost entirely to my work on browser views. Yuppie's  
been in touch with me privately but I haven't found time to do the tidying  

I agree with nearly all the points. I'm not certain that SchemaAdapters  
are always necessary. In my defence I hope it's worth noting that we now  
have tests for a heap of stuff in CMFDefault which previously didn't exist.

Regarding SyndicationInfo - I'd appreciate any pointers on writing a  
migration step. Given the hopelessly outdated state of the current  
implementation I'm not convinced anyone will need to do the migration but  
then, of course, one of the aims of CMFDefault is to provide exactly this  
kind of example.
