I recommend you take a look at Ruby on Rails. Some very, very clever 
people rave about it. It has its limitations, but I'm about to submit a 
bunch of diff patches to address the ones I've found. Very good though 
- very quick to develop full MVC web applications, but it is a bit of a 
steep learning curve if you're ingrained in the PHP 'hacker' ethic. It 
makes your comment about using a template engine a little funny though 
- no other way to do it with rails.
