It's only because the macros registration via ZCML and the TALES
expression isn't the right concept for what you where shoing at the
For your idea, you need to implement a custom page template where
provides a macros namspace. Then you can call macros in TAL like:
<metal:block use-macro="macros/myMacro" />
If we like to use the standard page template we don't have this
"macro" namespace and need a TALES expression for the macro
<metal:block use-macro="macros:myMacro" />
Right now without a macros ZCML directive we use macros via a
additional page (view) hook like:
<metal:block use-macro="context/@@macros/myMacro" />
In this case the "@@macros" is a view registred with a own python
class inherited from the class Macros. Most the time called
StandardMacros (see Rotterdam skin).
I only propose to get rid of this additional python class
implementation and view registration and like to offer a
ZCML directive and a TALES namespace explicit for macros.
