Ha! Finally someone mentioned XSlate. It's Up to *50~100 times* faster than
TT2, claimed to be the the fastest [template module] in CPAN.

Only one problem for me -- it is not in Debian repo. So I'd avoid it for
now, because I tend to believe the collective agreement/selection from DDs.

 well, i have to put in a plug for my Template::Simple. it is much easier

Yes, that's actually what I chose. Thanks Uri.

PS. Maybe your guys are accustomed to it, but it is so amazing to me, being
able to be in a local PM group and you can talk to the actual module
owners, and even meet them. Still feel so amazing to me.
