hi Greg.

these pythonic templates are done already. You can write any script
you can and it can create so much pages you want to ;)
The main problem imho is that the conversion page layout -> python
script is very mechanical and not_so_creative work. (Maybe I can
write script which outputs the script which creates page layout)
