The C code is optional.

I would still *really* prefer that you use a single-file templating
module at the expense of template aesthetics and even features. I am
still unconvinced that we need more features. You haven't shown me any
concrete examples. If we do the features of a larger package that we
need to cut down, I'd prefer a package that we can cut down by simply
removing files, not one that requires the modification of files.
