FastData DataController can't add variables to template dict

It would be nice to be able to let DataController clients add variables to the dict returned by its methods before rendering.

For example, the user can already override the template used for the DataController, but there's no way to provide additional variables for use by those templates (short of view.variable_providers, which is site-wide and not easily updatable per-page).

As a first attempt, I tried deriving from DataController, and for each exposed method, calling super(X,self).methodname and adding to the return value, but the expose() decorator in DataController has already rendered the template by the time the child class gets it.

It appears that the only way to do this right now is to derive from DataController, overload each method, copy each method body into the derived method, and add the variables there.
