I don't think it's too bad. I'm happy with how ZPTKit works, even
though ZPT isn't written (at all) with Webware in mind, or vice versa.
OTOH, I don't think ZPT with Webware provides a very good experience
without the non-trivial amount of glue code in ZPTKit, and that glue is
kind of a NxM problem (# of template languages time # of frameworks).
But it's not at the top of my list of problems.
Other templating languages, like Webware's PSP (which is JSP-like) are
harder to generalize like this, because they are more closely tied to
the underlying code (servlets in PSP's case). But, maybe ironically, I
find an entirely separate templating language easier to work with.
