Nested Masterpage with Blog in Subdirectory

Has anyone installed their blog in a subdirectory (/blog we'll say) and then made a nested masterpage off the theme's master page and then successfully used the nested master page outside of /blog subdirectory?

If I put the blog in the root directory, then I can do it, but things go wrong here and there when it's in a subdiretory.  It doesn't recognize the <blog:tagcloud> and other <blog> controls.  I tried adding the controls section to the root web.config and copying over the Bin and Controls folders, but not much luck.

For example, I'd like to have:

root.com/blog > this would be my blog, but then have content pages outside the blog directory, such as:

root.com/about/default.aspx

Just wondering if anyone has done this and could give me a few pointers, appreciate it.  I'm probably just missing a few minor details to get it working correctly.
