Sadly/happily, I was experiencing a rare bout of "writer's
revenge" (as in Montezuma's) this evening, the opposite of the
dreaded "writer's block", and had to take full advantage of
it. Consequently, I couldn't attend tonight's meeting.

But I'd be grateful if somebody could tell me how Mason and
the Template Toolkit compare in features, speed, support,
"coolosity", etc. I recall seeing a table addressing this
issue in an article on the web sometime back, but it was for
older versions of both tools, and will therefore not be very
useful nowadays.
