Yeah, we didn't like it much when we did it (and yes, it's still done 
that way).  I remember there being a good reason for it at the time (or 
at least one nobody could find a counter for), but I don't remember what 
that reason was.  Something about limited capabilities on the part of 
Template Toolkit I think.
