> It may be slow but so what

I would think speed would be a good thing.  Geeklog.net runs a little slow
(which doesn't look good for new people visiting the site) and I am sure the
template cache system would help out a bit there.

The if clause is also a big plus.

It's not like people are lining up with new features they want to implement
at the last second.  The template cache system has been known about for a
while and has been thoroughly tested.  I rather wait a few weeks for 1.5.0
with the cache than hold out for 1.5.1

Just my 2 cents...

It's perfectly possible that I'm missing something but what exactly is
the problem with our template engine? It may be slow but so what - it
has been slow ever since Geeklog existed in its current form. For me, a
faster / better / whatever template engine is a "nice to have" feature
that ranks pretty low on my list. I really don't get all the emotion
that seems to be involved here.

Phrasing it as "Better luck next time" was basically _me_ being pissed
off about how things were (or rather weren't) going since the end of the
SoC. It certainly wasn't aimed at you or your efforts. Sorry if you took
it that way.
