Why not just compile your template at the head of the file using,
Template.compile(file="path"). I did some experimentation with this, and it
is very fast. Only time I could see where deferred would be useful is when
you are compiling it initially, if you precompile your templates and dont
call any blocking functions within it, it will be more than fast enough.
