Hey everybody,

sorry that I haven't hooked in before, I read all the mails, but didn't
have time to respond.

Right now, Fluid (in v4) is only for Templating of Extensions. In v5,
however, Fluid will be the basis for the page templates as well.

We plan to create some kind of wizard, somehow analogous to the mapping
wizard in TV right now. With this wizard, one will transform his
HTML-Template into a Fluid-Template; so effectively, the wizard will
only add Fluid-Tags to the template. Additionally, we imagine right now
that it will record the changes it has made, so they can be re-applied
to a changed version of the HTML template.

Thus, I think we have multiple benefits:
- People who love fluid can just change the created templates by hand,
and add more fluid syntax if needed
- it is explicit what happens, as one can always look at the fluid
template to understand exactly what is being rendered
- we'll have a nice graphical wizard
- one can re-apply the changes to a fresh HTML template; thus, the
classical HTML Designer -> Implementor workflow will still work.

Though, all of the above is not implemented yet ;-)
