Rather, it's to protect them from having to code in complex programming language.

That argument is always brought up to defend template meta languages. But hey -

  • complex stuff shouldn't be in a template anyways
  • template developers themselves use a complex language
  • template developers aren't exposed to the hard bits of perl

I wonder why "preventing them from being exposed to perl" should do them any good? or to perl, for that matter?
