Note that my deferreds aren't the ones invoking Cheetah. My deferreds
return data on disk (or kernel cache), and this data will fill the
Cheetah templates. I render synchronously (I'm not using a pool of
threads to render Cheetah). What I do is to get the data from the db
async, but the rendering is sync.

So the idea is that the db query will return a deferred, I'd like to do
something like:

	t = Template('$something')
	t.something = self.sql.query() # will return a deferred

And I'd like Cheetah to interact with web2 stream write automatically.

What I do right now is to render different blocks of the template by
hand, as soon as the deferred fires, I use multiple stream.write by
hand. This way the page remains nicely interactive, but it's not
automatic like it was with nevow. Nevow understood deferred, Cheetah
