I suggest being more verbose here. Maybe use the text from Debian:

**text-based template engine and Python code generator*

Cheetah can be used as a standalone templating utility or referenced as
a library from other Python applications. It has many potential uses,
but web developers looking for a viable alternative to ASP, JSP, PHP and
PSP are expected to be its principle user group.


 * Generates HTML, SGML, XML, SQL, Postscript, form email, LaTeX, or any other
   text-based format.
 * Cleanly separates content, graphic design, and program code.
 * Blends the power and flexibility of Python with a simple template language
   that non-programmers can understand.
 * Gives template writers full access to any Python data structure, module,
   function, object, or method in their templates.
 * Makes code reuse easy by providing an object-orientated interface to
   templates that is accessible from Python code or other Cheetah templates.
   One template can subclass another and selectively reimplement sections of
 * Provides a simple, yet powerful, caching mechanism that can dramatically
   improve the performance of a dynamic website.
 * Compiles templates into optimized, yet readable, Python code.

Otherwise LGTM.
