[Hippo-cms7-user] Head contributions in sub-component

Hi Marnix,

Why do you want to do it like this?
There should only be one "head" tag in a html file and it would make the 
most sense to do it in the root component.
What's your use case for this specific need? If you tell us what you 
want to achieve we might be able to help you think of a different solution.
It'd be fairly easy to adjust the hst:headContributions to output stuff 
regardless of level, but you need to take into account that the hst 
renders components from the deepest one up to the root.
You won't be able to access contributions from child components in other 
trees on the graph regardless, the render model just doesn't work like that.


+-- AA
|    + --- AAA

Say you want to write out the head contributions in AA, it'll only see 
the head contributions from the component AAA, not from A, AB, ABA or ABB..

Hst renders the components so that: ABB & ABA are rendered before AB 
which three are rendered before A and AAA is rendered before AA which 
both are rendered before A.
