I just wrote a blog post about getting a browser view class
configured so that the content actions dropdown (the Actions... Add...
Display.. State... etc menu) display.
I mention two ways of doing this in my post, but after reading Martin
Aspeli's comment, I think the ZCML approach is the most sound.
Anyway, I was thinking that it may be a useful addition to the
addcontent view template. It would be a question like "Should this
view display the content actions menu", and then it would drop in the
necessary ZCML to make it happen.
There are ramifications to adding this, but I don't think it's
intuitive enough to figure out how to make this happen on your own (it
took me months of casual poking and half a day of actual research once
I figured out where to look). And I think it's a pretty common use case.
