Description: ------------ The HTML_Template_Flexy constructor checks for the existence of the compiled template directory. If the directory is not found then the constructor attempts to return a PEAR_Error object. However, constructors are not allowed to return anything. A patch is available from here: The patch adds a factory method to the class and moves the directory checking code to it.

compile() return an error anyway if is_Dir fails on it. - hence I've just removed that check in the constructor..

OK. Though I think adding a factory method is a good idea anyways. And if the app does the usual PEAR error checking then compile would never be called.

normally a factory method would return another class, - rather than the one being called.. - maybe a ::construct() method may be suitable - but since it's handled by compile anyway..
