After a little tinkering, and reading old posts on template plugins, maybe a
template plugin is the wrong approach. For the above to work it would need
access to Catalyst uri functions. In one old post, T0m says:
You don't want to do this.
TT plugins should be for trivial formatting stuff only, teaching them
about your application context is massively breaking abstraction.
So, would the LinkTo function I described be better implemented as:
[% c.LinkTo('Recipes', 'recipe/list') %]
If so, how does one make a function available in views via the CATALYST_VAR,
and where is the best place for such a function's code in a Catalyst
What's the definition of a legacy system? One that works!
