Last time I discussed this with Christophe, he was describing an
implementation where you could use pyramid's routes to mix pyramid
views (for some routes) and a cubicweb "handler" (for some other
routes). The cubicweb "handler" would do its own thing: execute a
query, find the best possible view and apply it to generate the

Too bad there is a collision between Pyramid and CubicWeb that both
use the term views to describe very different things. I guess we will
have to live with it, unless we want to rename CubicWeb's views to
"presentations" or something...
