Making phptal_tales() a static methods could be a good idea, but static
methods are a bit slower :\
To avoid namespace pollution it could be better if you use
PHPTAL\phptal_tales() or better PHPTAL\tales()
A simple find/replace should be able to fix that problem with code
compatibility... or am I wrong? :\
I'm just talking about patterns that could be used, I never crawled your
code in-depth, so it's just what I suppose... Avoid namespace pollution if
