Perhaps supporting simple templates could be an easy option. I mean
the example above is something to be avoided anyway I guess.

There is always the possibility of putting syntax that gob hates into
a separate file to include. I know this is ugly, but even if support for
templates is done, then it would still require a new enough version
of gob.


PS: I know I have been kind of quiet on the submitted patches. Fear not,
they are in my mailbox and are waiting for me to integrate them / test them /
make a release.
