Call me a purist but then your templates are no longer templates.

Point of templates is so your Web design folks to do work without 
needing to know how to program.

If you need "if then" I say add it in your PHP code and have different 
templates for the 'if' and 'then'.

Can't remember but I think the PEAR template system supports this 
despite my general dislike for it.
