Hi Franz,

I think this is not part of the "f3"-Namespace, as it is nothing which 
is "CMS-agnostic". However, I think especially for the 4.x branch it 
makes sense to have such a tag (available as t3:tsobject for example).
Do you think this separation makes sense?
In 5.x, we'll have to see how the rendering will exactly work, and as I 
do not have that yet fully in my head, I suggest we'll look at this when 
we have some rendering in 5.x present!

I am not sure if it makes sense to have one generic tag for all widgets 
- currently I'd moreover favor different tags for different widgets. For 
the standard widgets, I think some namespace like "<widget:" makes 
sense, as the widget implementation will be located in another package 

Benefits of different tags:
- Autocompletion works
- Each widget might have different arguments. By specifying them 
one-by-one, we'll get stronger checking of arguments, which is handled 
by the framework, and not the view helper itself.

I think the first step would be to implement the templating, and then 
think further how we'll really build the widget system.

Does this sound reasonable to you?

Thanks for sharing your thoughts,
