cubicweb #1382572 [registry] a select and call method [open]

I tend to use quite a lot (and even see it in cw itself) the

  • x = self._vreg['category'].select(...)

which cries for a shortcut.

We have had .wview(...) on view objects for eons. This should generalized.

For this to work, appobjects that actually have one entry point (a lot of them) should have it marked somehow.


vreg['foo'].call_best(regid, rset=rset, **kwargs)

would flow.

Here, kwargs would really be the cw_extra_args. Hence we also could kill cw_extra_args.

Details such as what exactly needs to be passed are to be refined.
