Are there studies that indicate that templating systems like MT's
actually are easier to use than PHP?  Considering how most people on
the street are baffled even by HTML, I wonder if <?php the_title(); ?>
is really that much scarier than <MTEntryTitle$>. How many more people
are going to start editing their themes because they can use the
latter instead of the former?
