Display Projects if Module - "DataObject Relationship Management"

Much thanks to all the hard work in developing this beautiful framework/cms! So far, development has been relatively smooth with my first Silverstripe project.

In order to help clarify my question I'll use examples from the [url=]Silverstripe tutorial (part 5)[/url].

Summary: I'd like a ProjectsHolder to filter by Modules a project contains.

1. A user visits the web site. The homepage shows a list of modules
2. The user clicks, lets say, the "Sapphire" module
3. The next page returns a list of all projects that include this module

Attempt for "gsoc-projects" template

<% control Children %>
<% if Modules == Sapphire %>
<% if MyStudent %>
<% control MyStudent %>
$FirstName $Lastname
<% end_control %>
<% else %>
No Student
<% end_if %>
<% end_if %>
<% end_control %>

Is it just a matter of adding an IF == [Module] clause under the <% control Children %>?

Also, would a better way be to pass the module name as a url parameter to just one projectHolder page that places the module name? How would this be done?

Thank you in advance for your help, ideas, and suggestions!
