Thanks for your explanations.

Well, I wanted to hide it in the main area (manage), but given that you 
have said that all entities are inevitably visible, someone 
knowledgeable could manipulate the url in order to access the hidden

Yes. Some really good software sometimes do not get the advertisement 
they deserve. Quite a lot of Python programmers have heard of OpenERP, 
Django or TurboGears, but really few have heard of CubicWeb. I have only 
heard about it because I was actually looking for a semantic web 
framework, and it was one of the first in the search results. Since I am 
also a Python developer, I decided to give it a look and was really 
surprised to learn that it actually supports automatic generation of 
what I have been manually implementing in Ruby on Rails.

That is what Thunderbird normally does when I hit the reply button to a 
mailing list, but I guess I have to pay more attention.

Thanks a lot for all the support you guys have been providing me with.

I will dig deeper into the framework and the examples provided.

Best Regards,
