Adding container elements to projection view

Hi,

I'm really impressed with the power and flexibility of the projections module and am currently looking at how it might be utilized in our projects.

I'd like to use the projection module to generate the lists for a scroller/carousel. This requires some additional container elements around the list and I'm wondering what the best approach to this might be. Customizing the projection layout allows for adding a wrapping element to the contents of each list item, but not to the list. Using alternates seems to be too generic (Parts.ProjectionPart) or too specific (url targeted).

Any suggestions here are appreciated. Thanks for such an intriguing new module!

You might want to create your own module which would add a specific layout. Layouts are completely pluggable, just take one from the source code, change it and publish it.
