Yes, Freeside will be moving to a template system - search the archives,
you don't have to convince me.
But no, it won't be using some random nonstandard, unfinished library
you've got lying around. :) I suggest you finish (well, nothing's ever
finished, but you know what I mean) said library and upload to CPAN if
you'd like projects to consider using it.
Freeside template system will be done using a generic template format that
will export to HTML::Mason, Apache::ASP, or any other sufficient "eval"
