FWIW, the QuickBook template engine was inspired by Terrence
Parr's template engine. It's a bit more flexible, though, in
the sense that the the template declarations and definitions
are both part of the language. It is, in theory, turing complete.
Rene Rivera is using it to target different backends.
Also, the current development on Spirit2 named Karma is
also inspired by it. Karma is a fully static, expression
template rendition of it using a syntax almost similar to
Spirit's. It will debut on BoostCon.
