let us look at all points of view. In an ideal world, one chooses the
best tool for the job at hand. No quarrel. But the world is not ideal.
Compromises have to be made (or trade-offs). Given a task one has to
take into account deadlines, resources/skills available etc etc. Maybe
for a particular webapp Django is overkill - but do I have the time to
learn something more suitable (or the ability)?
