I would also add, designed correctly a packed would have the unpack 
"button" built in and be tolerant of generating multiple copies. The 
content need not be in a field but hidden in a \define 

partial code to illustrate

\define unpack(packedtiddlertitle newname)
<$set name=defaultname value=$newname$ emptyValue="originalname">
Button that Calls packedtiddlertitle(newname) to create the tiddler
\define packedtiddlertitle(newname)
all it takes to recreate the packed tiddler
\define 2ndpackedtiddlertitle(newname)
all it takes to recreate the packed tiddler
<<unpack packedtiddlertitle [optional-new name]>>
<<unpack 2ndpackedtiddlertitle [optional-new name]>>

People could package and use this for tiddler templates and new tiddler
