 From what I can see there is currently no packaging system for views. 
This is one of my must-haves. But I've not brought it up yet, because 
I'm still only just starting to explore.

Remember, views are still in the whiteboard. They are quite incomplete 
still (excellent, but incomplete). After 0.7 is out, I would like to see 
views and the locationmap stuff come into trunk almost immediately. Then 
we can really get to grips with this brand new feature views) and old, 
but unused feature (locationmap).
