Sounds very cool! Is there a way of combining the MTB with FCE? So that
I can create my template completely with a "TEMPLATE" records, but use
FCE in the content area? Because we already have a very good workflow in
creating TYPO3-sites with normal HTML-templates with marks, subpart and
TypoScript, there's no reason to move to a TemplaVoila approach. But the
possibilities of FCE seems interesting.
