There are different concepts of ordering:
- sequential down the page
- hierarchical
- precedence 

I think we're talking about sequential - since XML does have a hierarchical
ordering, and doesn't seem to tread into precedence.  TAL defines precedence
(define before condition, etc.)

The idea for implementing 'else' (though I now think it's unneccessary) used
the hierarchical ordering of XML to get the ordering it needed.

But I also submit that ZPT can't be simply 'filling the slots' since it has
a condition statement.
