Fuck that template shit.

I was, earlier, relatively nice when talking about metaphilter, the software running Monkeyfilter. Well, that's a thing of the past. It blows. It's a complete mess. The template engine is a nightmare. It the worst piece of crap I've ever laid my eyes on. There, I've said it.

But hey, I'm only 24.

If we're to keep that codebase, we're better off using Smarty. It's easy to use, not hard to install, and has caching built-in. So it'd be two stones in one throw. Or something.

The nicest likely alternative to MePhi is, to the best of my knowledge, Drupal. It would require writing a mofi-module, something made from the Story Module and the Comment Module.

Or maybe not.
