I suggested to parse only the global (not the full template again).
Paul, please explain me, why the global is parsed 2x?
Yeah but in order for the global to be processed you need to put a tag in your template...there is parse number one.....then you are suggesting putting tags into the global which need to be parsed...there is parse number two.
Also how are you going to distinguish between perl globals that don't need parsing and non-perl globals that do?
It just doesn't seem like a practical idea imo.
