It's a good idea to try to implement a Turbine application stub as a portlet
but I don't think you should modify VelocityPortlet, simply create a
VelocityPortlet subclass or copy the VelocityPortlet and create a new

Also, I'm not sure your proposed patch follows accurately Turbine behavior:
- if you don't find the required Screen, you should execute a Default screen
   for the package
- you patch does not deal correctly with templates located in sub-folders
   like foo/bar.vm which should match <screnn package>.foo.Bar screen

Otherwise I'm +1 to commit an updated TurbinePortlet into Jetspeed CVS, it can
probably be useful to many developers.
