I was hoping it might also be a really good example of how to do
switching of token streams as a way to implement lexical states for
embedded languages.
That is, along the lines of  the "multilex" example in the antlr

But instead I find a hand-written implementation in StringTemplate.java
with  charAt(cp) ... cp++ etc.
Surely this does not set a good example for impressionable young
people? :)

In particular, for the cases where StringTemplate is going to be used on
html templates, it'd be nice to be able to be able to offer validation of
the html chunks.

I don't see how delimeter escaping is done btw.
