Enable is_page_template() within the Loop

There have been a few times where, in the loop, I need to know if I were on a page using a specific page template.

The function in_the_loop() provides this functionality for us to expand is_page_template().

Unless I'm reading this wrong, it seems like the issue here is the usage of query_posts(). query_posts() does change the active $wp_query and thus all conditionals.

This should work fine if you're on a page with a page template inside a loop. But *the* loop doesn't really make any sense as that should be the actual page (singular).

Alternatively, if it's proposing that it should work inside the loop for the current page: I think this would break things by changing the return value. While can take a function and make it work outside of the loop, taking a function and changing its behavior inside the loop is gonna cause problems.

Maybe I just don't understand the problem.

Travis, would you mind elaborating the use case?
