there are some things i didn't want to add to that quite long post.

in TALES, if path component points to callable, it is called to evaluate 
the component.  i didn't find such thing in PWT.  that's why the 
generator in my example component became property (it was method initially).

it seems to me that docstring in class Expects (module 
peak.web.templates) is wrong.

i didn't get the concepts of skins and ++ traversals.  we can go with 
what i've learned already, so i do not intend to dig into those matters, 
but i'm still curious, and would appreciate if someone could explain 
these concepts in simple words.

i think we'll use this for web actions since "tier 2" isn't expected to 
appear in the nearest future...
