Julien and I are in agreement on this point.  What we haven't done
that needs to be done, at least in terms of getting community
approval, is making sure this is acceptable for the Zope 2 community,
where the hope is that the Zope 3 page templates implementation will
be used for Zope 2.10 as well.  The Zope 2 community may remain more
interested in the SGML-based HTML markup.  The proposal has not been
presented in the Zope 2 community at all.

After talking with Jim, this seems less important, and it also seems
like it is a separate concern from the rest of these changes.  This
could be evaluated as a separate proposal after the implementation of
the rest is complete.

Are there issues remaining there?  Please detail them; I don't know
what they are.

The output still isn't right; most of this is bytecode generation. 
I've not been able to squeeze any time for this in yet.  :-(

Same here.  Stability is definately key.
