Thanks! I'll check it.

Interfaces are nice in theory, but I'm not a big fan of interfaces in
practice. I find often just a slowdown without no advantages (yeah,
class namespace __dict__ remains clean, but often there is no other
advantage), so I doubt I'll like the IRendererFactory way. In my own
twisted code (not the web part) I intentionally never use interfaces to
be sure not to run into unnecessary slowdowns.

How would I implement the equivalent of this?

	def render_copyright(self, ctx, data):
		return ctx.tag[tags.cached('copyright_class-' + str(self.inside_account(ctx)),
					   lifetime = LIFETIME)[

self.inside_account(ctx) returns True or False, I'm just trying to
understand the details of the interface way.
