      Oh, definitely. But there is no reason to encourage someone to do so.

      Template engines are amongst the things that seem easy enough to look at the
      available software and say "bah, I'll write my own in a day", but are complex
      enough to keep them growing over years until they become as huge and
      inaccessible as all the other implementations. Then it's time for someone else
      to look at it and say "bah, I'll write my own in a day".
