Why does askbot use Jinja?

What is the reason that Askbot switched to the Jinja templating system? To my understanding, Jinja is based off the Django template system, but does not support template tags (without massive headache), which most third-party Django apps use. For example, I'm trying to integrate sorl-thumbnails, whose main API is a template tag ("thumbnail"), and I have to figure out a way to to manually render the tag first, before inflating the template. I already had to do this for my personal apps, which is highly annoying.
