	I've found, having tried both, that using (and maintaining)
	custom templates for cfgmaker involves less work on my part than
	developing and maintaining a custom substitute for cfgmaker.

	I use custom templates for a variety of purposes, including
	tracking the client association-counts for 802.11 access points.
