Here lies a task for us too. Drupal has the themes for view, but ATM the only 
output possible is HTML. That is (and there lies a huge taks) because of a 
lot of hardcoded HTML. 
So in order to get the V layer correct, we need to get all the hardcoded HTML 
(even if they are hardcoded in theme functions) away, or better centralised. 

One possibility is a theme wrapper function: a lower level function that will 
allow you to define, in one place, what HTML/PScode/SVG etc is used to wrap 
your content in.
