[wp-hackers] Page Templates vs Category Templates

Ah yeah I do that in comicpress with a drop down selection of which layout 
the user wants to use.

In the header at the very bottom I put a get_template_part('layout','head'); 
and first line of the footer get_template_part('layout','foot'); which 
handles the layout code, and based on the user selection I wrote an if 
(comicpress_is_layout('standard,vertical')) {  then handle it.  each of the 
pages only contains the 'content' of those specific pages, while the layout 
pages handle the sidebars etc how the content is displayed, etc.

Think I have 11 different layouts, most with their own widths and some 
without certain sidebars etc.

Catching up on reading the whole thread right now.
