The CVS logs from edna are the original location. It was started in February
2001. Then I copied a version over into ViewCVS. Then another copy over into
SubWiki. Oh, and there is a copy in Subversion now -- we use it in the build
system for generating MSVC Project files (.dsp and .dsw) and for VC.Net
files. I also have a couple home projects that use it.

One of these days (with all that spare time), I'm going to create a little
SVN project area and check in the "reference copy" there, and maintain it
there. Then, in SubWiki and SVN (at least), I can simply use the
svn:externals feature to yank it into my projects. Eventually, I'll get
ViewCVS and edna into SVN and they can directly reference it too...

Oh, just for a bit more time each day... :-)

But yes, there are some similarities to Albatross. But it seems like
Albatross has variables and also makes function calls explicit. I wonder,
though: can Albatross be used outside of a markup-based system? Does it
assume and take advantage of within-markup-style-text templating?
