If they are quicker than a slug. Already in the DGH to do list.

Internally DGH duplicates the template, the properties and the
behaviors of a grid in a special TMPL we use as a preview.
When the modifications in the preview are applied to the grid, we
replicate the preview content in the original grid.
We have named this the DGH Mimetism. 8-)
