many bitter experiences - security is a nightmare for php apps. Take a
look at the number of security updates wordpress has per *month* - more
than django has had in 6 *years*.

<<<--- do you want to live on the edge like this? 

Most LUG sites run php, maintained by 'experts' - they are regularly
spammed or cracked even when the most draconian lockdown/captchas are
implemented. Volunteers just do not have the time to spend half their
nights applying security patches. 
Important note about updating Themes:
If you have made **any** changes to your theme (tweaking things in
style.css or changes to the template files), the changes will be
overwritten when the theme is updated. Be ready to re-do the changes
after updating.

what fun!
