there are multiple frameworks around, what is the different focus of 
each one? After last night, I have some feeling that I might want to go 
for Django if setting up a community site or a newspaper (but maybe not

mind spending time learning about a lot of modules by different authors. 
But why might I want to use maypole and not catalyst? (or vice versa)?
