I don't think any changes to the runtime requires changes on the templates.
At least, that hasn't happened for a long time, as roundup grew more and
more stable. What happens, of course, is that the vanilla templates themselves
get more sophisticated over time.
However, as I expect us moving away from these default templates rather quickly,
I'm not sure merging in new features is the most efficient way to enhance our

I think we should start with the tracker instance we already have (which Erik
put together for the prototype, and to which I contributed some template
