This is probably a good point for community involvement - someone for the
community refining a content type/product which does what you want.  The
impending upgrade of zope.org to the CMF architecture should make that
easier.  Some collaboration with zope corp folk (probly martijn) will be
necessary to get the scoop on the existing setup - and the existing setup
will need to exist, first!-)

Ideally, there would be more of this type of thing - it's in the interest
of everyone for people from the community to be able to scratch some of
their itches, and for zope corp to not impede that happening!  The trick
is "getting out of the way" in a manageable way.  Lets revisit this after
the new zope.org setup is in place...
