I'm not sure I agree with you.

1 - the constructs probably call an internal API. that's two levels of
complexity to implement
2 - the API is based directly on Python. Python has a much larger
userbase and test suite than any template language
3 - the Python language has 15 years of refinement in what it offers
as language constructs. Most of these template language are ad hoc
products fashioned and re-fashioned over at most a 3 year period.
