Comment (by r-a-y):

 @djpaul - Thanks for the refresh.

 I had a chance to play around with the LightnCandy patch and
 unfortunately, our usage of mustasche tokens are incompatible with the
 official Mustasche syntax:

 For example, take the token, `{{poster.name}}`.

 We pass on the token in BuddyPress like this:

 `array( 'poster.name' => 'foo' )`

 Mustasche / LightnCandy expects this:

 `array( 'poster => array( 'name' => 'foo' ) )`

 We could switch to the latter syntax internally, but we would also break
 all 3rd-party plugins using BP HTML and tokens using dot notation.

 `03.patch` does some backward-compatibility token parsing to ensure we can
 support the older syntax up to one-level of dot notation (`poster.name`
 would convert to the new syntax, but `poster.name.surname` wouldn't as we
 haven't used tokens with two dots internally).

 Patch passes existing unit tests.

 Note: I haven't switched up all of our internal tokens to use the new
 token syntax yet.

 Also, in the patch, I've removed the usage of the `use` keyword since I
 would rather this be used for namespaced classes.  This isn't a sticking
 point for me though.
