I currently write my own lense in python (Ubuntu 13.4) using singlet. In the api documentation, there is a Unity.LayoutHint (View), which is used by Unity.PreviewAction (View). I don't see any change if I use different values when constructing the Unity.PreviewAction.with_layout_hint(...).

So what is Unity.LayoutHint intended for?
