Description

Important note: This ticket can work only if #8296 gets checked in.

Currently there is the convenient {% with %} tag to create variables in templates. Unfortunately there is no built-in counterpart for blocks. The attached patch does just that, with the following suggested syntax:

{% withblock as myurl %}
   {% url path.to.some_view arg1,arg2,name1=value1 %}
{% and as var %}
   {% whatever %}
{% in %}
   Click the link: <a href="{{ myurl }}">link</a>.
   <p>{{ var }}</p> 
{% endwithblock %}

This syntax doesn't really stand a chance. It's fairly unreadable. Needs more design discussion before it can become a ticket and that can wait until after 1.0.
