Why can't IView (or whatever it is) just specify that the constructor must accept a request, response and a template instance?


Because the template may not be passed in, and even if it is, where would it be constructed and how would it be found again?

See my currying comment later in the thread.

then you may as well not have a 'template' attribute for <browser:page If you have it done in ZCML, though, you can get a template-only view without any Python at all, though:

<browser:page
    for="*"
    template="mytemplate.pt"
    name="my_view"
    permission="zope.Public"
    />

yeah, but I'm talking about the horrificness that currently makes the above work.

I'm asking whether it really needs to be that bad or whether it could be more sanely implemented.

I guess I should just make a branch and have a play or stfu...

The later is likely to win due to lack of time

*sigh*
