I don't think we care about such browsers as all our themes already use

The directory can not usually be automatically created because of

What we are currently planning (and I will work on that quite soon
after finishing migration to Git) is to use Gettext for translations.
Main reason for this is to use standard format where there are plenty
tools which translators can use and we can easily provide web based
interface to translations.

So when choosing templating system, it should easily integrate with
gettext. Unfortunately I don't see any of mentioned system to talk
about translations as their feature. (I mean something like
translations in Django [1])
