The use-case is that there is a product that collects information from
other objects, depending on the current user and on query parameters,
and that collected information should be present as a HTML page... so
I think 1) won't work here. Regarding 2), I don't know this "browser
view" thing, but I recon that's a Five/Zope 3 feature, is it? Because
unfortunately it's a messy 2.7.6 + Plone 2.0 instance here, and it's
not like I can migrate it before the current job is done.
