I'm still grasping to find my way around viewlets. I think we need to do 
some more thinking before we fold this into the Grok core (which I hope 
we can over time). Hopefully we can find out a way to make this less 
magic without increasing the verbosity. On my end, this will require 
some thought about what viewlets are for. If we could (somehow) get rid 
of one of the entities (viewlet reference in view, viewlet manager and 
viewlets) that would help. If we can fix the ordering issue by taking 
definition order by default that would also help.
