FTR, this seems to be the de-facto choice in the Plone world, and it's 
quite well production-tested.

I didn't even know about the others. :)

It's a bit disappointing that Uli created a new package rather than add 
the relatively minor feature missing from collective.recipe.template 
according to the PyPI page, although I agree the lack of tests is 
off-putting and should be fixed.

Still, since the package was based on the other one, I don't see why we 
couldn't have added tests to collective.recipe.template rather than fork 
it. :-/
