Seriously, this is enough.  Using things like {section} (a type of 
foreach loop) and the like is nice, but it's things we (as designers) 
can work around.

Seriously, I can think of maybe three cases where I *needed* this kind 
of feature.

I'll look into the other template classes and see if there are any that:

  a) provide this support, and
  b) don't have any real increase in processing time

I'm sure one of the template classes has this capability.
