[Plone-UI] Place some views' titles in the breadcrumbs

Hello list,

This is the first time I read/write to this list so I apologize in 
advance if I'm repeating something.

Recently, someone asked on the "usuarios-plone" list (plone-users in 
Spanish) how to make a view appear in the breadcrumbs. Then I realized 
that views such as "Site Map" or "Contact" don't show in the 
breadcrumbs, since the breadcrumbs only show for content objects, and a 
view isn't a content object.

My question is, wouldn't it be nice to make breadcrumbs show up for 
views like those so we would see "You're Here: Home -> Contact us" 
instead of only "You're here: Home"?

This could be paired with a developer mechanism to make views show in 
the breadcrumbs, maybe checking for he "title" attribute of the view 
class and showing it if available?

What are your thoughts on this?

Thanks for your reading time. :-)
