[openstack-dev] [infra] javascript templating library choice for status pages

As someone that's done a decent amount of hacking on 
status.html/status.js, I think we're getting to a level of complexity on 
our JS status pages that we should probably stop doing this all inline 
(probably should have stopped a while ago).

I'd like to propose that we pick some javascript templating framework, 
and start incrementally porting bits over there over time.

My current thought is - http://handlebarsjs.com/ - mostly because it's 
only a template library, won't cause us to do a complete rewrite, and we 
can move it in in parts. Other opinions are welcome.

But if we get an ACK on some approach, we can then start phasing it in, 
vs. the current state of the art which is way too much string append.
