Nice, but my Outlook plugin fetches not all past postings and I don't want
to use a separate app. Bad for me, ok...

No, that's too late now, too many extensions developed. That's the reason
why I came to the idea of a template repository. Read below.

Think about templates with extensive css files - css files, that includes
settings for the 'most wanted' and 'most used' extensions - like tt_news,
chc_forum, indexed_search...
Maybe a bit more work for the template developer, but a great benefit for
Typo3 coder. Coders can contribute new class definitions to the template
designer, so he can update the css files with new definitions.
Just an idea from my point of view, but let's end the discussion here, I
continue template coding in the common way :-)
