That would be great as an example. :) The major problem I see is 
<map:resource name="skin-read">
  <map:select type="exists">

That should go away because it is to complicated IMO. I archived to
resolve js and css only through the lm. Images need some kind of
different processing though (e.g. svg2png).

Anyway you can add the 95% to the whiteboard and I will try to finish
it, if you busy. Thanks for offering to move it up your todo list. :)

Jeje, I know, I am a lurker on that list. ;-) BTW that is good news that
you want to base it on views, I think you can use v2 for that right
away, because I reckon you will use default contracts. 

Actually thx to david and antonio, v2 is right now usable, but the
upcoming changes will influence the howtos and without howtos (again) I
do not feel like recommend (again) the usages.
