An issue exists in the template lookup system when using shared namespaces between similar but separated django eggs.

Each egg contains it's own templates but when loading the eggs in Django only the most recent egg template directory is read. The attached patch searches the module.__path__ directories and not just the file location.

We need a test case or self contained project to show the issue. To me "using shared namespaces between similar but separated django eggs" doesn't ring a bell (maybe it should, but it doesn't). So, closing as needsinfo.
