I'm quite new to erlang. I'd read something regarding edoc, but didn't
know it was the "standard" for documentation. I'll rewrite the docs
using edoc.

I'd thought to embed a cache in the template engine to store the

I'm not sure anymore that this is the right thing to do, so it might change.

Maybe I released the code too early, but I needed some feedback.
