It seems to me that the problem here is in appearance. Although it seems 
that you're aquiring an index_html or searchResults in those cases, they 
are actually instantiated in scope just like anything else you'd add 
inside that particular object, you just can't see them.

So you have two choices. Sub-class Tracker or Squishdot and override that 
way. OR 
Make a folder that contains the overridden methods and call things 
through the context of that folder. 

In the case of what it seems you want to do I'd say sub-classing is going 
to be your real answer.

Hope  that helps...
