well said, adding smarty will add another 400-500KB of weight to the 
if I'm not wrong. Besides, I don't see any reason as to why Smarty is to 
be used, just because
instead of using

    foreach ($comments as $comment)

you use

    {foreach from=$comments item=comment}

or instead of

    if ('unapproved' == $comment_status) {

you use

    {if $comment->status=='unapproved'}

I mean where is the sense?? That's doing just the same thing with an 
added overhead!!
I say, someone gotta have a ridiculous sense of humour if they say that
    {foreach from=$comments item=comment}
is easier than
    foreach ($comments as $comment)

Are we thinking about making WordPress faster & lighter or bloating it??
