To be honest I'd rather be plagued with termites rather than writing Cheetah
templates. But this is just me.

From the performance point of view if speed is all you want pure stan is
faster than cheetah almost for sure. and by pure stan I mean no sequence
renderer for sequences but rather gen exps or list comprehensions and similar

Of course IMHO this is not enough of a reason to avoid nevow. First of all
citing nevow as fragile is unfair. You said yourself that you haven't had to
change your code since version 0.3. And now you state that it's fragile.

The next time I'll just break the API so that people saying that Nevow is
fragile will be definately right.
