Handy for adding theme support

I’m using this to add basic theme support to my app:

append_view_path(File.join(RAILS_ROOT, "app/themes/#{@current_theme}"))
append_view_path(File.join(RAILS_ROOT, 'app/themes/_base'))

Common templates go in app/themes/_base and then you can override these with specific theme versions in each theme directory.
