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.
