We need to do impact analysis to see what the cost would be of shipping 
this by default.

Is there a page somewhere which spells out how templates can break due 
to syntax changes?

How easy is to, say, debug chameleon templates compared to 
zope.pagetemplate ones?

What would the possible interactions be with the use of 
zope.pagetemplate within ZTK code?

Without knowing all that, I'm in favor of trying to go there with Grok 
in the future.
