I tried to follow this idea, because it sounds so simple and clean.  But 
when I examined it more closely it seems to get involved in some of the 
deeper aspects of JSPWiki processing that I've never really understood.  
So, this approach is not really an option for me.

I've done quite a bit of work with Velocity myself.  Could you put me in 
touch with someone who's using Velocity within JSPWiki?

In the meanwhile, I think I'll stick with making additive changes to 
ViewTemplate.jsp to handle customized JSPs.
