I guess I would have to see it.  I know some people can't work by
partitioning the templates into different directories, one for each app
for various and sundry reasons.

However, if the apps are distinct, why can't the controller prepend the
client's directory name for any requests going to that client's app?

It breaks.  Everything is currently dependant upon this.
