At some point I might try to do it. The main issue is how to deal with
expressions that returns Deferreds. The options are:
1. Render page templates in threads
2. Use stackless
3. Hack the rendering loop so that it can deal with Deferreds correctly.
(2) is coolest, but problematic due to stackless' cross-platform issues.
(1) is probably slowest option, (3) may be difficult to do, depending on
how the code is structured.
