Currently writing template code like this:

<a href="{% url {{currentPageName}} nextPageOffset %}">Next page</a>

results in syntax error.

Technically I see no obstacle to disallow evaluating such expressions, please implement it.

After thinking it over, the problem is actually with the URL tag.
It interprets unquoted text as value not variable reference, unlike other tags.

The proposed syntax is just a workaround for problem within the URL tag.
