Had a chance to test the templates and I have a number of minor patches for the VB.net side of things, but for and editable object with child collections, it's starting to look really promising. I've been able to revert from multiple template references to using Entity.cst to build the business object relationships. I'm feeling the CSLA love from CodeSmith.
26 files generated for my CSLA business objects in 10seconds (5.6seconds to compile the templates), so it's blazingly fast. Simple "Client" object.
Couple of minor VB.net bugs in the upgraded code, which I've supplied patches that should resolve the issues. Linq in C# is slightly different to the VB editions (DOH!) and I've done my best to translate, but I'll admit Linq isn't one of my strengths.
Can't wait to get into using the View/Stored procedure side of these templates!
Here are some of the issues that I've submitted patches to resolve compile errors and warnings.

I've fixed all of these issues in the latest nightly build of the templates.
Few more minor patches. Loving the editing process with CSG6 templates. It's fun!
These have been fixed.
