 Replying to [comment:1 tibbe]:
 >  * Is it OK to use `PathTemplate` for template strings which aren't
 necessarily paths or should we introduce a new `Template` type?

 I took a look at your second patch; it looked fine to me.

 As far as your question above, I'm not sure why the template system we
 have needs to be specialized to FilePath; couldn't it be generalized?
