other names are better. But I'll point out the main reason for the
Camlet/Jamlet name choice: easy to remember and type. I found "stylish" to
be much harder to get out than "camlet"; that might just be because I'm so
used to hamlet already, but that's exactly my goal here: make these three
templating systems work together nicely to make the developers life a little
bit easier.
