Refactor entire templates system

Issue #109 resolved

It's really messy, with lots of conditionals.

It would benefit from a rewrite with a more declarative programming style.

Trying to add inline templates was really tough.

    The whole entry points method of discovering template engines appears to be outdated. I discovered this first when attempting to add jinja2 support. See and the associated issue.

    I looked into the TurboGears2 source and they don't appear to be using the entry points method anymore either. We could try just copying their code. Supporting Jinja2 is a blocker for solid Flask integration.

    Tested it against the doc tutorials and the latest tw2.devtools browser. All working. Merged in as of version 2.1.0a.
