I just discussed this with Karsten a little. At the moment I don't think
that it makes sense or is especially wise to market the templating  
as another product in parallel to TYPO3 and FLOW3. It will be based on
FLOW3 anyway (right?) and therefore will surely be yet another reason
why people will want to switch to FLOW3.

Therefore let's just see it as a (very cool) FLOW3 based package for the
time being. If the engine and syntax turns out to be really successful,
we can still create a dedicated section on typo3.org or even a website
(fluid.typo3.org) which lists all the ports to different programming  
and frameworks.

TemplaVoila was yesterday, now comes Fluid!
