I think it's a great idea!

I do have a couple of questions/suggestions:
1) how do you pass parameters to templates by name? For example, how would 
I do {{tname | para1 = val1 | para2 = val2}} ?
2) will there be support for the #switch: statement? or will it have to be 
done with nested ifif s?
3) will this be open source?
