It'd be great to have smarty or some other templating language rather than straight PHP for the index. It would have several benefits IMO:
-less possibility of messing things up horribly
-safer for those offering hosting... can just give access to the .tpl file without worrying about command injection!
-cleaner syntax for non-programmers

  • Owner changed from anonymous to matt
  • Resolution changed from 10 to 90
  • Status changed from new to closed

This has been debated numerous times on the forums and elsewhere and the general consensus is that while Smarty is a fine framework for certain types of projects it is ill-suited to the goals of WordPress.
