I don't know why about that one.

I seem to recall that this one was me;  I likely closed out your
Collector issue (May last year, was it), expecting that Evan's (?)
"loop variable" patch for the '<dtml-in>' tag would get folded in,
which never gelled.

The sentiment against "DTML-as-scripting-language" also makes
introducing more control structures difficult to sell;  I don't
buy that, myself, but have to listen to folks who do.

Anyway, I'm sorry that your proposal fell through the cracks;
the "hot money" these days is all on HiperDOM/XHTML stuff, rather
than DTML, so it may stay there (especially if the patch is hard
to apply to a recent Zope).
