Yeah. This was really what I was looking for since I generally use ST for a
variety of things. What would be even better is if you have an existing file
that you could use as a template and be able to poke holes in it for the ST
attribute placeholders. I do this a lot already using the File and Live
Templates features of the IDEA IDE although last I heard they use Velocity
for their stuff.
