hello,

yes. I guess that would do the trick, but I'd be moving configuration into
the code, which I think belongs in the zcml... (which sometimes can be a
good thing, but I think this particular configuration fits better in the
zcml)

what is the pourpose of the "for" option in the zcml directive anyways??
It'd be nice if I could define my interfaces (plural!) for which the viewlet
should render without changing the code.

thanks anyways. 
cheers. luis
