I've nothing concrete in mind. Twig has a lot of transformation methods,
including things such as:

  wrap_in (@tag)

  Wrap elements $tag as the successive ancestors of the element, returns
  new element. $elt->wrap_in( 'td', 'tr', 'table') wraps the element as
  single cell in a table for example.

which may be going to far, but can be very nice when you find you need

The advantage about my homegrown methods is they fit the (current) task
well. But I'm not giving them sufficient time or thought to be useful
beyond that.
