+1 - that way addition of portlets is directly associated to the current

+1 on all of this, it makes sense

Just for clarification, are you talking about a bug in the /desktop 
customizer or /portal customizer?

Also, we have not agreed upon using Dojo in the /portal customizer, 
currently its all non-dojo customization. I would like to propose that 
we replace the default customizer in /portal mode with the same 
customizer that is used in /desktop mode.

Steve, do you think this is possible?

(Lets keep the emails to one subject. I'll respond on the build error on 
a separate thread.)
