Thanks Joe - DCC is looking better with every release!

Is there an example available for how we'd do a list template, or is it just supported in the API at this point?

Also, one small recommendation (and maybe this is planned): I think it would be cool if the viewer module had permissions for "Add Entry" and "Edit Entries". I think that would really simplify the usage. For instance, we could have a list template that just includes an edit link, but only have that link automatically hide if the user doesn't have permission on that module.
