AFAIK the Jifty folks don't like TT ("I will not learn yet another language for templating"), but I'm sure if someone came along and bolted TT on top of Jifty they wouldn't mind.  It sure would stop a lot of complaints.  I doubt it has to live on top of Mason, I don't think Jifty is using the Mason event loop.

If you want to read up about Template::Declare once place is the "Scary Jifty" slides.

Slide 136 is where they get into TD (don't worry, the slides are short).

If you're confused, ask here and I'll see what I can fill in.
