Just FYI, the cfperl project (http://lifelogs.com/cfperl) has
templates using the Template Toolkit for Perl.  cfperl uses cfengine
groups definitions, etc. and the templating functionality was
intended as a replacement of or supplement to the cfengine
editfiles.  The Template Toolkit is very powerful - you can do
practically anything that you can do in regular Perl.
