Good to see.  Although we currently don't make use of templates at
Untyped, no doubt we will have use in the future.  I can see these
templates being useful for, e.g. blog engines, which require
customisation by non-experts.  The implementation is interesting.
It's not what I would expect (breaking lexical scope, display via
side-effects?) but it'll take more use for me to judge it.
