You could also just try extending the VelocityViewServlet, and
creating/configuring a VelocityEngine on your own in init() and doing
something like:

public void init(ServletConfig config) throws ServletException

    VelocityEngine myWay = new VelocityEngine();
    // configure it your way here...


You might lose a few log messages from the engine being replaced, but
that might not be a big deal to you.
