Velocity support is optional (in theory), you can enable it by adding
Velocity dependencies to classpath. But because of VelocityManager

latest Velocity version (1.7 or 2.0).

That's why I want to move Velocity support to a plugin.

Regarding 'for which version' - no idea. Right now I'm preparing a
field for all those changes, code is very coupled in many places. Thus
will also allow in the future move other Core functionalities to
