Note that PTL is already optional; simply never import and call
enable_ptl(), and the PTL import hook is never installed.  As you've
discovered, it's not too difficult to use alternative templating schemes;
you've used Cheetah, and I wrote up a recipe for using ZPT
(http://www.quixote.ca/qx/TemplatingWithZpt).  The ptl_compile and
ptl_import modules only add up to around 500 lines, so it wouldn't reduce
the code size of Quixote very much.
