[Zope3-Users] z3c.rest and layers

I'm trying to expose objects via REST. Reading about z3c.rest and
looking at the examples, the rest code is not really a view but a
customization of a http request. The problem is that I don't know how to
also expose a object that already has a html view (yes, I don't know
zope3 that well...).
Looking at grok rest documentation I noticed that the approach was
simple as it uses a different layer for rest calls.
After a lot of investigation I could not figure out how to do that in
zope3. So, how do I do something like:
http://localhost/<container> --> returns html
http://localhost/++rest++/<container> --> returns REST content
Other approaches are also welcome... it would be nice to have a "Using
REST" documentation in bluebream that goes straight to the point...
