implementation detail (a name conflict), ``data`` is called ``global_data``
when used in a shortcode.

If you have some template code that you want to appear in both a template and
shortcode, you can put the shared code in a separate template and import it in both
places. Shortcodes can import any template inside ``templates/`` and themes,
and call any macros defined in those.

For example, if you define a macro ``foo(x, y)`` in
``templates/shared_sc.tmpl``, you can include ``shared_foo.tmpl`` in
``templates/special_post.tmpl`` and ``shortcodes/foo.tmpl`` and then call the
``${shared_foo.foo(x, y)}`` macro.
