[web-devel] Interpolation character in Julius

Hamlet, Cassius and (currently) Julius all use a consistent set of
characters for interpolation. The dollar sign ($) is for plain scalars, the
at sign (@) is for URLs and the caret (^) is for embedding other templates
(mixins in the case of Cassius). I like this consistency.
Unfortunately, in the case of Julius, the dollar sign is a suboptimal
character to use since jQuery uses is so extensively. Currently, to write
you have to use a double dollar sign to achieve escaping, namely:
So the questions to the list are:
* Is it worth trading consistency for a better choice of interpolation
* If so, what would be a more optimal interpolation character? I think
percent sign (%) might be acceptable.
Interpolation is not as important in Julius as it is in Hamlet, so I'm
beginning to lean towards replacing the character.
