There seem to be a few issues in the way Razor views are designed and the code generated
1. Descendants of WebViewPage are forced to override Execute() (since it is abstract) but that method is never called. Why?
2. The virtual method ConfigurePage is never called in descendants that override this method.
3. CreatePageFromVirtualPath is no longer virtual. This was the one method that gave us access to the Layout Page (Master Page) instance. Now we no longer have this access. Why was this done?
How can one get access to the instance of a Layout page?
