Unfortunately, you don't say why.
From what I've read so far, I seriously hope we don't adopt Smarty. I'm already learning PHP, so why should I learn another language simply because "everyone else is doing it"? Unless Smarty was to give us a real good reason to switch to it, my vote is 'no'.
Earlier in this thread I mention PHPTAL. It looks like only one other person agrees with me — sort of. PHPTAL is the only one I've run across that would actually benefit OC developers; allowing them to develop visually in Dreamweaver. Apart from that, I personally don't see any reason to change what we have.
