 * Find a way to extend the existing templates instead of rewriting all from scratch.
 * find a better way to specify the templates. an idea is simply to install the templates in a default path, and to add a way to specify them by default under a "_themes" dir.

-* Fallback on mtime to get date informations
 * Change the directory structure ?
 * update the doc
