then you'll have

* security flaws
* uses and abuses from users who don't understand data/behavior
  separation (a very good example of how bad it can end up is php)
* a langage that is harder to explain to a end user than a simple yaml
* an extra dependency for free

i want my result to be

* readable, diffable, editable
* serialized with no useless \n, spaces or tabs
* comment free
* known as valid (every tag is closed in the fine order)

so TextMate/vim snippets are not even close to be enough to me
