I just started revistiing this feature recently.
In order for it to complete it, we need to:
- make persmission checks before granting access to these pages
  (there currently is no way to declare security access to a psml page.
   this would be useful for administrative users to customize users psml,
and the anon account)
- correctly rewrite the links to include these parameters
- add jlink methods to build these links from .vm

Im working on an algorithm in the profiler so that when a user
doesn't have a requested psml resource, it will fallback and look under any
role-resources that the user may have of the same name.
Although this may be useful, it may cause issues for portlets that persist
parameters in the psml file.
