Could you elaborate on this a little?  I want to do this too (defer
rendering in Woven) and I use Widget subclasses everywhere.   At what
point is it OK to produce a Deferred?  

The only method I override in my Widget subclasses is setUp.   In my
top-level Page subclass I have a single wvfactory_ method for a special
View I use, and a getDynamicChild to fetch children (in this case, all
the children are dynamic).

Are you suggesting that I return a Deferred instead of a View from the
wvfactory_ method?  Or that I return a Deferred from the getDynamicChild
method?  Or what?
