Again, I must disagree with this assertion.
We *must* allow calling the t() function in templates.
We generally allow calling the theme() function in templates. (Note that
doing regions is currently done with theme('blocks', 'regionname');
This wouldn't be a step backward from our current setup; and the t()
function itself poses a really special problem. It's difficult to put
all text in preprocess functions, and if you put text in page.tpl.php
then t() must be available for translation. Yes, this is a
Smarty and PHPTal are both capable of allowing function calls. Any
templating system we use simply needs to be able to allow at least those
2 function calls
