Wow, this is cool!

I think this is pretty much exactly what we want ;-)

Couple of minor points:

 - We can now remove the @@theming-controlpanel-editor view (edit.py,
edit.pt), right?

 - We should put the 'home' button into the root of the tree. Right now, if
you navigate to a subfolder, you can create/upload files there, but to go
back to the root, you have to click the home button, which is awkwardly

 - The Save button is a bit hard to find. Maybe just put it into the
 - Would be good to have a 'Save all' as well

 - If you close a tab, there's no warning you'll lose your changes.
 - Ditto upon leaving the page.

 - The tabs are not particularly pretty and there's an awful lot of gray in
the toolbar
 - A fullscreen button ala TinyMCE would be useful

Still, this is way, way cool. I could see the same code being generalised to
support editing things like Deco site layouts and Dexterity type views.
