That's a good data point, thanks!

I'm especially curious about cases where a template uses another using 
some kind of inclusion scenario. ZPT expects inclusion (for instance of 
macros) to happen by view lookup. I think many other template languages 
include bits from another template on the filesystem. This might bump 
into Grok complaining when it finds a template without an associate view.

I'm not sure your .rst templates can refer to external templates. If so, 
it'd be interesting to find out whether that works.
