I expect it depends on what is changing more.  If you are working on code
in the application, then you want the templates themselves to have no
code.  On the other hand, if you are using a "finished" application and
want to make changes to the HTML produced without fiddling with the
application code, Cheetah-like systems are much more flexible (and simple
substitution-only templates are very limiting).
