[TYPO3] TS Setup for HTML Templates w/Template Selector

Tell me if this makes sense, or if there's already a better way to do 
this.  After I got the Page Template Selector extension working as 
described in Modern Template Building, I wanted to make available the 
ZenLight template from mediatech.net.  This template was not designed to 
work with the Template Auto-parser extension, and requires an initial 
typoscript setup file be copied into the template record.  That's cool 
on it's own, but doesn't work well with the current Template Selector 
extension.  I had to modify it quite a bit to get it to work.

What I'm proposing is to allow templates to have an associated 
typoscript setup file along with the html file.  So there might be 3 files:
The extension would then automatically load typoscript in the .t3s file 
when that template is selected (and could be automatically applied to 
the whole page tree underneath).  These values could then be overridden 
in an individual page's typoscript setup field.

Any thoughts?  Would this work or is there a better approach?
