def range( value ):
  """
    Filter - returns a list containing range made from given value
    Usage (in template):

    <ul>{% for i in 3|range %}
      <li>{{ i }}. Do something</li>
    {% endfor %}</ul>

    Results with the HTML:
    <ul>
      <li>0. Do something</li>
      <li>1. Do something</li>
      <li>2. Do something</li>
    </ul>

    Instead of 3 one may use the variable set in the views

My impression of this idea is that it is trying to lead to programming in the template. If you have a list of options that need to be rendered, they should be computed in the view, not in the template. If that's as simple as a range of values, then so be it.
