Yeah, I did something like this a while back. It's basically just simple 
copy of what Mark Jason Dominus did with his Text::Template Perl module.

Here's my code page

text-template.ss is on there. It needs regexp-split.ss which is a 
regexp-split function because there wasn't one in PLT when I wrote this. You 
should be able to use the PLT one now instead. I'm not sure if this code 
still works with current PLT Scheme, it's been a while
