The problem with the Xtemplate engine is that its code is dated.  If 
you use Xtemplate in combination with PHP5, it is generating lots of 
warnings which we are currently suppressing in a rather hack-ish way.  
To fix this properly, we would have to rewrite large parts of 

I don't think we need to drag Xtemplate along in Drupal 4.7:
- We can announce in advance that Drupal 4.7 will no longer support 
- We will maintain Xtemplate in the contributions repository so it will 
remain available.
