[Catalyst] Making pages within pages

Have a look at Catalyst::Plugin::SubRequest.  That will allow you to
make a completely separate request to a different action, and it returns
the finished result in a variable.  Then it's up to you to write that
out to a file or do whatever with it.  You can even do the subrequest
call from your TT view and skip the writing to disk entirely if it suits
you better.
