Overriding Add-on View Engine


Is it possible to override the view engine that is used to look for the locations of the views for add-ons so that we can add in extra paths to search.  The reason for this is that so we can customise the view for one customer without changing the default view.

Or is there another way to achieve the same thing with add-ons?

We managed to find a nice way of getting the functionality that we wanted.  

We implemented our own Virtual Path Provider that checks for the existance of the virtualpath (ie. views/shared/index.cshtml) in a configurable folder and if the requested file exists in this folder then it is used instead of the default version of that file.
