The bad news is, string.Template only appeared in Py2.4, and we
support Py2.3 (although we still lack a Py2.3 metabuildslave).  This
wouldn't be so bad, but importing WebStatus imports everything else,
so this change would preclude using WebStatus on Py2.3.

So a few solutions present themselves:
 - make WebStatus only optionally import the console, and document
that console requires Py2.4
 - rewrite console to not use Template
 - write a compatible Template class that's used on Py2.3
