Sometimes, I want the convenience of an inclusion_tag without specifying an external template. I can't use simple_tag because I need context access.

@inclusion_tag allows either a template name or an iterable of template names.

The attach patch allows a template to be given directly, as well.

I noticed @inclusion_tag doesn't seem to be currently tested, and this patch doesn't include tests. Where should @inclusion_tag tests live?

I applied his patch and it passed the tests and then checked out the result in the documentation. All looks good to me.
