'This looks good in practice. But does it work in theory?'

google-jstemplate has been open sourced. (The link points to a slideshow-overview containing the quote above).

I've been pushing much more typically-server-side functionality down to the client, but am finding a wall at some point when things like performance etc come into play. When this happens, I move the functionality back to the server (5 lines of jquery becomes 30 lines of perl or 100 lines of C#) where I have more control and predictability with things like caching/dom parsing/same-origin-policy etc.

I am very interested in learning from the google folks who normally blow through this wall on a regular basis.
