I think we **really** need some complete doc about that. Building a
large web app with half written doc is quite hard (no doc for macros,
guard, Form, ...). Btw, I don't know how (and where !) to start
developping my application :(

RPY seems to be a good starting point to me. But I think I was using it
in a wrong way.
If I understand it well, I should have :

- xhtml templates.
- xhtml macro templates eventually.
- rpy files.
- py files.

xhtml templates are used for presentation
python files are used for logic
rpy are glue between presentation and logic. 

that's it ?
