[Moin-user] How to find out the 'MasterPage' from an included page

The theme knows the "master" page, because it has to render a page 
title and navigation bar. You can create your own theme and a macro 
that will get the master page from the theme and create links to the 
master page or to sub pages of it.

You will have to save d['page'] on your theme header() method, and get 
it later from macro.request.theme.
