new-user-emails, welcome-mails, pathauto, newsletters, themes, auto_nodetitles 
and so on.
 Just a few random examples of token-replacement. Drupal has nothing in this 
regards, every module on its own, resulting in a lot of code-overhead, 
inconsistency and all the other downsides of not having a central/modular 

Are there any projects on this? Any APIs, libraries, or exsisting modules that 
do what I need: centralise token replacement? Or even an existing patch or 
issue that I missed?

What  need, more specific, is:
* Present the user/admin with a list of available tokens (%username, %site 
etc) in a help message.
* Parse these by replacing tokens with the value of a variable.

What I don't need, is:
* A new templating engine.
* complex if-while etc structures.
