Is the discussion available somewhere? The original snippet.el (the one
that stirred the whole interest of textmate snippet feature in emacs) is
string-based and the core concept is linking similar fields with naming
i.e. multiple occurences of $${filed_name} are changed together. So if
we introduce [field-name] (or :field-name) as a new element to skeleton
to do the same that would seem to offer the core of snippet. Just
thinking though. I have never used anything beyond the original
snippet.el which is only a few hundred lines.
