[jifty-devel] Can I use Halos with Jifty::View::Declare templates?

I've been playing with Jifty a bit and I wanted to use the Halos on the 
tutorial app so that I can play with them a bit.

The problem is that following the directions in Jifty::Manual::Tutorial 
you do not get the show halos and page info links at the bottom of the 
page. they show up on the admin page but not in any app (including the 
demo apps in the examples directory) that uses a View class to define 
the templates instead of mason. is there a way to get those halo links 
added with a Jifty::View::Declare template? It looks like the Halo 
plugin is still putting code in to support halos but nothing is drawing 
the links needed to make them show up and I don't have a clue about what 
I need to put in my View class to make that happen.

I'm also wondering if i can have someone modify the look of my templates 
without modifying the code in the View class. do I have to stick with 
mason for that kind of thing? I only ask because I flat out suck at 
making web pages and want to use jifty
to define how everything works and let someone else make it look pretty.
