Cool I just did the same so we can compare the methods.

OK, it is quite possible that your solution does not address this since 
as  understand it you are only dealing with presentation data. If not 
then the solution might be forrest:views for presentation config and 
Nicola/my RT for meta-data.

If I need it it's even better motivation for me to implement it once I
