I've been a Smarty user for nearly 15 years, it's been pretty great to see this project evolve! Since Smarty is so extensible, there's been only one missing feature that's affected my development. I'd like to be able to make a custom function with one or more shorthand attributes.

So for example: {foo "bar"}

The problem is that Smarty doesn't support creating custom functions with shorthand attributes. Smarty custom functions must have parameters in the key="value" format.

So currently you must do: {foo key="value"} and there's no way to have {foo "value"}

This is due to internal API specifics, but then you could specify parameters in any order, which is a large bonus for templating language.
