That said, let me be clear that I'm flexible and if a consensus
emerges that something that doesn't fit the httpd_design_handlers
extension point is preferred, I'm happy to help change it to that.

Another disadvantage to the deeper URLs required by stacking the doc
and view rendering namespaces is that links from rendered views to
rendered docs start to look like "../../../docrenderfun/docid"
