What we really need to do is add a utility method like template_name() to the 
Catalyst::View base class.  Even without the :Template attribute, there is 
code duplicated between every view that shouldn't be( $template = 
$c->action || $c->stash->{template} ). 

Let's factor that out into to Catalyst::View, fix the views in svn, and then 
you can add the :Template code there.  It needs to be done, and your feature 
is the, uh, catalyst for change.
