I think nice for the docs would be a demonstration of getting *all* 
IFactory utilities available to the system. This is something that a CMS 
built with dolment.content will often need.

Perhaps you can also talk a bit to the argument signature to __init__() 
of content objects. In order for utilities to be universally useful, 
they'd need the same argument signature, right?

dolment.content is quite close to what an app I am working on might 
need. I used a homegrown infrastructure for this, but I suspect it can 
be cleaned up if I use this.
