      Description

      Having a String to Block coercion would allow the following to be equivalent (excluding minor whitespace issues):

      <t:if test="stuff">
      ${stuff}
      <t:parameter name="else">No stuff to display.
      </t:if>

      and

      <t:if test="stuff" else="No stuff to display">
      ${stuff}
      </t:if>

      This could also be implemented as String -> Renderable and Renderable -> Block; this would allow (for example) a lone component to be passed to a component parameter of type Block.
