+1. Everyone's templating style is different. At work, we just spent a 
couple of days implementing our own having looked at over a dozen 
existing systems because none of them quite matched our requirements. 
Templating is the kind of problem to which there is nostraight forward 
solution, and I see no benefit of including it in the standard library 
when so many template systems are already available that cover so many 
different styles.
