Quick sanity check -- I've got two templates like this:

My assumption has been that the first of these is more specific
and so would have a higher priority than the second, but my output
suggests that the second is firing instead of the first. Is my assumption
Yes. Priorities are applied *severally*, as if you had three separate
template rules for your first template rule, each with only a simple name
and a priority of zero. Your second rule is more complex than a simple
name, therefore it has higher priority of .5.
Note that there are no higher implied priorities ... all patterns more
complex than a simple name have an implied priority of .5.
I hope this helps.
