But how useful is a "Home"-link, if the user does not get anywhere by
pressing it? Currently, the "Home"-link always just renders the same page
again, so it's completely useless. In Jetspeed 1.3, the "Home"-link
returned every portlet to the normal state. Therefore I figured out that
the new behavior seemed like a bug to me.

I can, of course, use the "Restore" icon. But I feel that a "dummy"
end-user needs to have an easy escape from the maximized portlet view,
because he/she does not necessarily notice the little icon there. All I
ask is that you would provide such a "restore all"-link in the
VelocityContext that is available for the "top.vm" and "left.vm" Velocity
templates. Can you provide such a link?
