Great. I'll take a look. Just came across:


Is this of use (you've probably looked at this already).

I can link it into format.py if you wish.

I am not sure how we go on this. One obvious approach is to add to the
genshi search path so we can selectively override the main templates.
Something like:

# in your environment.py

    # Load-up the template options
    tmpl_options = config['buffet.template_options']
    tmpl_options['genshi.search_path'] = paths['templates'][0]

This would be very useful even if we just draft it first and then
decide how to add it later.
