Just proposed? This:

Goes back to december 2005. :)

Anyway, allowing the standard browser views to return something that 
needs to be adapted to IResult would allow us to return markup streams 
that could then possibly be post-processed. If we can at least hook into 
the right place of the publisher to do the post-processing?

Meanwhile it looks like Kevin Smith's skin work on his branch can just 
go ahead, as we'll need it whatever we do. We should look into merging that.
