I can appreciate that, but PHP *is* a templating language that is meant to 
embed dynamic strings into static strings.

Therefore, I strongly agree that there should be a shorthand for this type of 
thing.  When considering correct separation of code and templates, this output 
of dynamic strings should be optimized in all ways possible - both performance 
wise and syntactically.

And yes, all of my template code uses short tags for direct string output and 
the short tags do cause problems so I'm looking forward to a better way.  Even 
in PHP 5 :)
