If you're not aware of the capabilities of TypoScript, you would start looking in the repository for something usable. I immediately remember using something similar for getting a content element from a different page, and displaying it. Combining this with a COA_INT, to prevent caching of the element, I was able to do this in under 5 minutes with only 15 lines of TypoScript code (including marker assignment).

The challenge came with writing the navigation for this. I wanted to do this entirely with TypoScript. And I (we, got a little help from Pim Broens ;-)) did it!
