It sounds like a reasonable thing to do, so i expect there is a way to
do it.  However, this does not appear to be a velocity question so
much as a jetspeed question.  Velocity renders templates with whatever
Context it is given.  if the same context is used for multiple
templates, then subsequent templates will have access to the same
context variables as those merged prior to them.  I suggest asking
this question on a jetspeed list.
