Yup. Me and Stefan should try to push our Jinja stuff so we can merge 
with 0.7.12 as well, so the rest of you can take a look at it. (The bulk 
part is done.)

It'd be cool to have that available going into 0.8.

It's just based on a 6 months old branch, so the merging will take some 
doing. I suppose merging small steps (a few weeks worth) at a time is 
the way to go. Merging with current head gives conflicts everywhere.
