The Python equivalent to your list of templating systems can be found
here (under "Engines with Annotated Templates"):

http://wiki.python.org/moin/Templating

I note that your list mentions XMLC which was probably one of the
first solutions I encountered employing the approach you describe. One
issue typically arises when using such solutions, however: trivial
modifications to the output document are convenient, but how do you
effectively manage situations where you need to modify or populate
large numbers of "slots" in the output document?
