I expected an error, not a panic. text/template docs do not mention Execute panicing.

http://play.golang.org/p/Ul3-jwOA0x

package main

import (
    "log"
    "os"
    "text/template"
)

func main() {
    const input = `{{nil.Bork}}`
    t := template.Must(template.New("letter").Parse(input))
    err := t.Execute(os.Stdout, nil)
    if err != nil {
        log.Println("executing template:", err)
    }

}
