  • Well, the thing that always irked me, is how templates can be "compiled" (= converted to perl code which, when executed, produces the desired output from the template) and stored to disk, for simply reloading and running later. The compiled templates must be writable by the program that compiles and uses them, in order to be able to recompile them on the fly, if necessary; and which may running under the same under-privileged user as all other users are using; for example, when running as a CGI script.

    That way, all those other users can modify the code that will simply be executed by the other program.

    And that's just one scenario, I'm sure you can come up with plenty of others.
