Orthogonality is pretentious comment 000

Custom tags don't really change anything -- unless you created a tag that eval()'d its content. Custom tags extend the list of constructs, but it is not the template programmer who is extending anything. Custom tags seem more like a localized or app/site/domain-specific set of constructs, and then you have the main Django tag list and the local tag list, but they are still lists.
