Actually, Hanno was right. Using zope.pagetemplate was very easy. The demo
app at now uses slow-TAL ;)

You have to subclass PageTemplateFile to be able to send *kw to the
template, so to make things simpler for GAE users, I created a
zope.pagetemplate bindings package for BFG, similar to the existing Jinja2
package. With this package we can use the regular BFG api names for template
handling. It's on the svn repository and it's the one I used for the demo.
The package includes a bfg_zpt_starter template to use instead of the
regular project template for GAE.
