It would be one of

   (:include SomePage base={.$FullName}:)

   (:include SomePage base={$FullName}:)

which tells include to do all values relative to the current page
instead of SomePage .  

I'm also thinking that an empty value for base=, as in

   (:include SomePage base= :)

will mean that no substitutions are performed by the (:include:) --
the text is brought back "as-is".  (This would be the same as PmWiki's
current behavior.)

I may choose "basepage=" instead of "base=".
