Ok, it works but maybe it should be made explicit in the documentation.
Maybe it is in there somewhere, but in that case it is in typical unix-
style (not user friendly): It is in there, but you need to read it 1000
times to finally notice it.

Maybe the example could be turned into an example with a subdirectory? I
really think that is the way most users would use templates.
