@OvermindDL1, very glad to hear that. Not familiar with Haskell, but
C++ templates are a familiar territory.

That would be really a great help. However, if you (or anyone else
here) had a chance to compare Nitrogen & Zotonic on the developer
efficiency and learning-curve aspects, would be good to hear. Also,
how does it compare in performance terms, i.e. programmatic HTML
generation in Erlang code, versus template driven HTML generation
using a dedicated templating engine (if I understood it correctly).
