Automaketemplate is out of the question in any case. :-)

I would vote for keeping a model where you can still use XHTML templates like in TV, but adding a Fluid layer would also be good: We need both, not just one of them. Some templates (especially custom content elements) don't need fluid, others would benefit hugely.

Good for a proof of concept, yes, but not for the final version.
> The "easy" way is of course a work in progress and it could be even more integrated with Typo3, it is pretty easy for example to add a "save to mapping" button instead of the "copy to clipboard" button that would save the generated mapping to a record in the database in AJAX, and this could work for any templating system (TV, Fluid, jetts, whatever you like). So, no more copy/paste action, no more Typoscript just point and click in Firebug and save to mapping, i think this would be useful.
Why not start by asking "how can we make a templating system for TYPO3 that will be easy to use, powerful and well integrated"? B-)
I guess it's the difference between bottom-up and top-down development (where you seem to be more of a fan of the first, and I of the latter).

ExtJS is compatible with more browsers, and it's already a part of the TYPO3 core.
Hehe, sometimes rewriting makes better code too. ;-)
