Don't.  Use the (s ) field of tempel.  If you have corfu with capf, you
should be able to expand them.  For build-system you might want to add
"-build-system" at the end, so that the user only has to type "gnu",
"maven", etc.  Less fancy than the yas one, but probably just as good.

Probably a tempel limitation.  I think it works to M-RET and then
expand at point (using corfu or a tempel binding).  Just printing out
the unexpanded string should be enough for that.
