Cool, I'll make the change and un-deprecate the original method signature.

I seem to remember attempting to use
data.getRequest().setAttribute(JspPortlet.TEMPLATE, template) to achieve
per-request scope but I ran into problems. If I remember correctly, with
multiple JspPortlets on the same page, overriding template this way changed
the template for ALL JspPortlets. Isn't the request object shared between
all instances of JspPortlet on single pane whereas each VelocityPortlet gets
its own context object? Please set me straight on that.

I agree. You can log that as an enhancement in Bugzilla.
