Aha, it's becoming clearer. I bit of tweaking and I realise that I can
actually do:

  [if I have sub view : Local { } in Trick.pm]

so I'm not "locked in" to a particular controller, I just can't leap
from one default to another ... right?

After months of working with someone else's nasty homegrown webapp
framework, and hearing Maypole's praises from a cow-orker [and also how
he wishes Catalyst had been out earlier, or his current project had
started about 6 months later], I know that Catalyst is a good way
forward .. I just need to get my head into the right mindset to work
with it.

I can see how easy it's going to be, once I get over the initial
learning curve for slotting bits together.

Cheers for your help and time so far ...
