I'd be open for suggestions for other tests.  A majority of the fixes  
were templates and they were to use an already existing bit of code  
functionality that I didn't add like you said.  The viewlets were  
modified to support this and I have the test to confirm it in the base  
class for the viewlets.

If there are some specific tests you'd like to see I'd be happy to add  
them, but in the end the trickiest piece of code I updated was the  
calendar tool modifications and I added tests there also.

FYI...  we have released collective.lineage which depends on many of  
these fixes and I believe will expand the number of people using this  
functionality.  There are a lot of people excited about this new  
product and are wanting to deploy it.  We actually have 1 site in  
production with it already.  Since this functionality was already in  
Plone before I got ahold of it I still see this PLIP as a large bug  
fix that really should be included.
