[Koha] Two Koha instance but only one Zebra configuration

Hi Michael,

as far as know you can't have instance specific template files (.inc.
.tt) the same way as the configuration files. In theory you could try
and set up your own theme for them. Koha should fall back to the
standard theme for files not existing in yours, so that could be an
option, but will always require continuous maintenance. And then there
is also translations to worry about.

I'd probably try to do the change in a way that doesn't affect your
other instances visibly and still has them using the same code. For
example by using a locally defined system preference or CSS to switch
things off and on. Or maybe your new facet would be interesting as an
addition to Koha itself?

Best wishes,
