Hi Robert,

My friend Lalo ([EMAIL PROTECTED]) started a rewrite of TAL to make it more 
pluggable and ease backporting of i18n to Zope2. I dont know how much if it 
is done right now, but the last time I talked to him, he said that only METAL 
was missing.

His work is available at http://sf.net/projects/collective -> Browse CVS -> 
Alt-TAL module.

I think that the best idea is support him, as he has almost everything in
