The Nelsonville Public Library, where the npl templates originated, is
using an odd branch of Koha referred to as "dev_week." It's an amalgam of
the old 2.0 branch and the new Zebra-based searching that will be in 3.0.
dev_week is a dead-end, because all the current development work is being
done on 3.0. 3.0 is still under development, so it's probably not what you
want to start with.

That template was developed specifically for dev_week, but could be adapted
for use with 2.2.9. In fact I'd like to do so myself, but haven't had time.
If you grab dev_week from CVS you'll find those
templates are included.
