Well, that opinion was based mostly on my initial exposure to each one.
The main reason was that Cheetah seems to require a lot of $ signs, even
in the Pyton code itself, such as:
for $thing in $things: etc....
whereas with Mako you can just write straight Python code. Overall I
think I'm liking Mako better, which is fine since I want to learn Pylons
and it's the default. :)
