So if I want to include "{some content}" literally in my template, I
have to generate

  <script>function f() {{some content}</script>

rather than

  <script>function f() {{some content}}</script>

And if I do use the second form, I'll get:

  <script>function f() {some content}}</script>

in the output. You're OK with all of those inconsistencies?

I think we either have to say "}" needs to be escaped or it doesn't. I
prefer to say it has to be escaped because I think that's more

OTOH, I expect it'll be pretty uncommon to want to generate curly
braces (script elements in (X)HTML output notwithstanding) so I'll
probably vote "concur" whichever way the wind blows.
