[Catalyst] Using a post argument in a template

I was trying to munge the paramaters in the controller, I just can't figure
out how to access the variables of a controller method in the template. I'd
be more than happy to pass the argument to a controller, and then have the
view fetch it from the controller, and then the template read it from the view,
If I had any idea how to dereference the variables in order to set them in
new components. I was just trying to keep it walk before running and I keep
tripping over my feet.
