Can you use a variable with include-page macro?

I have a page that I need to render inside the parent page. The parent page is created with a template, so I won't know the exact name of the child page until it is created. Is it possible to do something like this:

{include-page:title=%pagetitle% Color}

So, if you are on page 'Apple' the page you are rendering inside 'Apple' would be 'Apple Color.'

I think there are a few ways of doing this either using the reporting plugin or the Confluence Run Plugin with the run-now macro and the $page_title pre-defined variable.

{run-now}{include:$page_title Color}{run-now}

How can I do it with the run-macro in a template? When the page is named 'Apple', this works in the template:

{include:Apple}

This works as well, somewhere in my template:

{run-now}$page_title{run-now}

But this doesn't work:

{include:{run-now}$page_title{run-now}}

If you have the Reporting plugin then you can use injection and the %...% syntax you suggested in your post. Something like this should work (untested) : {report-on:injection=true}{include-page:%page:parent > page:name% Colour}{report-on}

I have the idea this doens't work anymore with Confluence 5. 

(it does with unmigrated wiki-markup).

Anybody know what changed?
