Dataface compiles

A place to discuss development of the Xataface core.

This is a brief thought, imaginable for the farflung future....

The Smarty Templates work by 'compiling' into PHP. That is, they take your smarty template and output actual PHP code. When we discussed the thing about having a field name parser so that certain fields could do certain things, (say all ID_ fields not being displayed for instancce..) the possibility exists, but could slow things down for someone who has a lot of them. What if a persons dataface settings were compiled to generate just smarty?

Of course this would first have to be an option (another program) and the program would have to be set..ready to go.

Not even sure how possible this will be at some future point. (just a brainstorm not a request)
