using trunk and branches/freeform-patterned (after irc session with
fzZzy) right now.

it is not; here are the problems:

		stan     -> works as expected
		htmlfile -> infinite recursion
		xmlfile  -> no error but does not render
                            (template copied 'as is' to output)
		stan     -> works as expected
		htmlfile -> works as expected
		xmlfile  -> no error but does not render
                            (template copied 'as is' to output)

i can check the other loader if needed. a test case is on the way.

I don't find this much usefull, sorry. what we really need in a real
use-case (on your browser in 15 days and GPL'ed after that :) is
sub-template rendering. luckily enough loaders.htmlfile is working. hope
to see that in trunk (and maybe a working xmlfile too) soon.
