I'm thinking about how to apply some template to each page, or better, to a layout.
Imagine you have few pages and each of them having a button at the bottom and a label on the top (just for the sample's sake). The rest is custom content.
Even more simplified than the above, I am thinking of a layout like:
where out of the box ContentView does only:
One of the way this would be possible is by inheriting ContentView and hack it a bit - because it has only Content property and it is difficult to combine the template and the actual content.
Basically if Xamarin provided a way to combine template and content like XAML does through i.e. ControlTemplate it'd be awesome. Or just some virtual methods that would allow that cleanly.
