Template Edits with Add-On

The only real way to do it at the moment is a post template listener that manipulates the DOM. You can see this in my add-ons. XenTrader should show it. Annoying and has a performance hit in theory (could add some form of caching I guess) but the only way I have found to do it. In the future I am going to have documents so people can disable the listener doing it and explain to do the edits themselves if they see any performance drops.

I don't understand why XF coders made it so complicated that it has to put a load on the servers. I mean do they expect everyone to use template edits? Because not all mods can make use of those.

Is there maybe a way where I can have my template code be within a variable?

Like $soundcode

and have php code locking it into the variable:
$soundcode = 'embed';
