      Description

      Unless it's something I have to enable (and I've seen no mention of that in any
      documentation), I don't believe using curly brackets to surround directives
      actually works. According to
      http://jakarta.apache.org/velocity/user-guide.html#Directives "Like references,
      the name of the directive may be bracketed by a

      { and a }

      symbol." I tried the
      example in that section:

        1. First, a bit I added:
          #set( $a = 1 )
        2. The actual example line:
          #if($a==1)true enough# {else}no way!#end

          The output of this is, unexpectedly:

          true enough#{else}

          no way!

      And if $a is set to 2 (for example), there is no output at all because the
      #

      {else}

      is not spotted.
