Called when an include-type directive is encountered ( #include or #parse). May modify the path of the resource to be included or may block the include entirely.

includeResourcePath - the path as given in the include directive.
currentResourcePath - the path of the currently rendering template that includes the include directive.
directiveName - name of the directive used to include the resource. (With the standard directives this is either "parse" or "include").
a new resource path for the directive, or null to block the include from occurring.
