Templates are constructed with an optional origin argument; this is used for debugging purposes.

But I think it would be useful for the Template instance to have an origin attribute -- then template origins could be more easily inspected and logged outside the django.template infrastructure. The specific use case I have in mind is making it clearer to FE devs which templates/template dirs are being used for a given request.

Template's constructor receives an origin parameter, so this should be a simple change.

This makes sense and it can't hurt. Are you thinking of any particular API other than just setting the origin attribute to the Template instance?
