jQuery Templating in the HomeTab.

So, after asking Andy to take a look at the HomeTab, and see if he could
bring some Raindrop-style fanciness to it, it struck me that as long as
particularly easy for him (or Andreas) to style. So I asked James about
various templating systems that we might want to use.
He suggested three or four. The first choice, and the one I think we
should go with, was jQuery-tmpl, the officially-maintained jQuery
templating plugin. (The others were Mustache, his own Blade, and
Andrew's Wmsy. As I understand it, Mustache is pretty close to
jQuery-tmpl, but isn't as integrated, and Blade and Wmsy aren't quite up
to a point where we want to depend on them. As a side note, jQuery-tmpl
is dual licensed under the MIT or GPL Version 2 licenses, so I think
we're okay using it. If not, we can always ask jresig at mozilla.com for a
more acceptable license. ;)
and committed it as
and I plan on converting the rest in the near future.
Having said that, it wasn't a lot of work, so there's still lots of time
to switch to a different templating engine. Which is a longer way of
saying: Any feedback is welcome.
