Pretty well, I suspect.  Of course, real languages are less tolerant
of error than templates (even PHP makes syntax errors fatal), but I
don't think the bar to entry would be huge.  You might also get more
real programmers willing to deal with complex templates instead of
avoiding them like the plague because the language is so hideous, as I
at least currently do.
