Yes, it is the right approach and yes, you can nest viewlet managers; you 
merely have to make the action implement the IViewlet and IViewletManager 
interface. Roger and I have done this before.

z3c.menu provides base classes for simpler menus, such as tabs. Roger and I 
did not really do a good job developing this package, we just wanted to reuse 
the code in several projects. At some point we should develop the package 
into a serious menu implementation.
