Controller inheritance and views inheritance

Hi

I'm using controller inheritance and I'd like to have the views
inherited from the ancestors controllers as well.
It seems that in an inherited controller rails only looks for views in
the current controller path without considering the ancestors.

I'm on rails 1.2

Is the situation still as described in

http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/65677#77391

Anyone is aware of patches or plugins to achieve what I want?

Thanks

Paolo
