1) implementing in 
mkdir -p projectDetails/foo
mkdir -p projectDetails/index
vi projectDetails/foo/${dispatcher.theme}.fv
vi projectDetails/index/${dispatcher.theme}.fv

Important is that the template name is equal to ${dispatcher.theme}!

2) implementing presentation logic in the main ${dispatcher.theme}.fv
<jx:if test="${!
 <forrest:contract name="myContract"/>

Hmm, not sure would be new. Should work fine: is the template name equal
to ${dispatcher.theme}?
