I didn't ask *if* it would work in today's code, Jon!  We already
confirmed privately it didn't.  I asked *how* Velocity can have such an
if block.  It was a question of design.  Saying "alpha code" three times
at me doesn't tell me the answer.

If you included 10 lines of JavaScript and all the curly braces in the
JS needed to be escaped, then that would be ugly.  I see jvz said that
matched curly braces in the JS wouldn't cause confusion, so that answers
part of my question and with a good answer.  But I remain curious how
unmatched curly braces are handled.
