Comment (by jdgrimes):

 Replying to [comment:3 welcher]:
 > I think abstracting the code can start with `WP_Widget` itself. The
 `widget()` method is extremely generic and I would start by having it call
 three new public methods:
 > 1. `before_widget()`
 > 2. `widget_markup()`
 > 3. `after_widget()`

 I've done something similar to this with the base widget class in one of
 my plugins.
