sorry for the weird quotes. I seem to have problems receiving emails, only the junk gets through.
So I'm picking up the replys from the mailing list archives.

That is in essence how Django does it. The order in which it checks is 
defined by the TEMPLATE_LOADER configuration.
Usually the application and filesystem loaders are in the config and the 
last loader one wins, so to speak.
I think there should be enough code in Django's template system todo all 
the heavy lifting.

Each Django application that supplies templates has a templates 
directory in the main package. If the application follows Django best 
practices the templates directory then contains a directory named after 
the package which in turn contains all the templates, possibly split 
into more subdirs. The application templates are found using the 
app_directories template loader.

i.e. .../site-packages/the_app/templates/the_app/list.html

The projects templates are found using the filesystem template loader. 
If the projects templates match the applications template path within 
the applications templates directory then the redefine/shadow/override 
the application template.

.../django_project/templates/the_app/list.html would redefine the above 
application template.

I guess I'll have to dig into the pylint panel.

Is there a big difference between Wing 4.x and 5.x when developing 
extension panels with a tree control?


P.S.: In the mean time I got my mail fixed.
