There's another point in favor of jinja2: it's what sphinx uses.  This means:

- we're already somewhat familiar with it (at least those of us who
have messed with customizing sphinx builds at the template level)

- it may make it easier to produce high-quality html via sphinx
integration from notebooks.

Yes, the dependency question is the one that bothers me...  No good
ideas right now, I'm afraid.

Thanks for doing the legwork!
