Of course you're right about the expense of generating the content,
although in some cases, if bandwidth is an issue, the generation time
might be an acceptable expense against the saving in bandwidth.

Ok, I didn't know the file based templates already had this data. It
sounds like that is the way to go then. It's a shame in a way, stan is
quite a nice way to template :)
