I was looking for a way to get the term description to output below the view, and had to make the following change to make it work (tvi.module line 222):
return (($desc) ? $desc : '') . $view->preview();
return $view->preview() . (($desc) ? $desc : '');
This isn't in a theme function, and so I found I had to hack the module to get what I was after. Is it possible this could be made themable? I can see a lot of potential uses for being able to output the tvi info in different ways.
