iirc, WordPress dropped support for smarty becuase it was a hassle to
maintain and seems to be slightly harder to explain, as well as lose
some customizability of themes. I think for a hosted WordPress
platform where you don't want PHP available in files, this might work,
but for a self hosted blog like the majority of WordPress' audience
its best to stick with PHP.
