I assume you're referring to JMacro, correct? I wasn't able to get it to
build at the moment, and even if it *did* build, it has a lot of
dependencies, which isn't something I'd like to subject Hamlet users to.
Also, probably the most important feature for me in the Javascript
templating will be type-safe URLs, which I don't think JMacro supports.

Also, I thought I'd publish the results of the naming survey[1]. Summary:
overwhelming support for Cassius, Julius and Mustard. I thought I'd also
publish some of the best comments here, please feel free to claim them:

Thank you for replacing some layers of brittle duck tape with good static
duct type :)

I hope you don't end up with a mismatch like Camlet and Jsaesar; that would
be awkward. Also, I just noticed this, but Camlet might lead to some
confusion with the Caml family of languages.

I bathe in the blood of my enemies; eating it would be disgusting!

I'm just running a few compiles to make sure everything went fine, and will
then be pushing to github.
