in thread RFC - Template::Empty
In TT and Template::Alloy - you can call into perl to manipulate your data - but the language has enough flexibility that you don't have to.
Really it's a matter of whether you want this flexibility. I find that I don't want it and I also claim that having it just tempts you into doing things in your templates that you should really be doing in your code. Those with a stronger will may differ :)
