Has anyone investigated the amount of work required to switch the theme support in Typo to Liquid (http://home.leetsoft.com/liquid)? I realize there are a large number of themes out there which Typo would like to continue to support, but while investigating multiple blog support for Typo, I thought the non-evaling/security features of Liquid would be very nice to have. As far as the multi-blog support in Typo, I haven't had much time to devote to it, but my most recent set of changes ran into a bit of a roadblock with the sidebar controller/components (see my email sent yesterday).

I haven't looked much at Liquid, but my understanding of the purpose of the non-evaling/security features was so people with no Ruby knowledge could customize their shop appearance without worry. I don't think we're targeting quite that low a level of knowledge with ruby themes, so I don't know how much benefit we'd get from switching. I also don't know if it would prevent any potential features from being implemented in themes.

A version of Typo which supported non-evaling theming would be quite neat if someone wanted to set up a Typo-based weblog hosting facility. Of course, such a facility would want to disable rhtml-based theming altogether. :-) TX
