Turbine already has the above already implemented.

What is wrong with:

<input type="text" name="foo" value="$foo">

?

Joist is fully operational and used for production systems.

Yes. There are a couple of things to do upcoming:
1. Replace the connection mechanism with a better connection pooling
class that can manage connections with more than one database. Turbine
has such a class and we should just use it.
2. Eliminate the need to subclass from WMServlet. I would like to
remove the utter dependence on WebMacro, and instead treat WebMacro as a
templating engine only.
3. Add a mechanism for handling form data errors in a uniform way, so
that errors detected by the data management objects get reported cleanly
and the form redisplayed with the previously entered data filled in.

These are roughly in the order of increasing difficulty.
