[BangPypers] Evaluating Web Frameworks based on certain criteria

I was using Pylons for nearly 3 years and moved to Flask instead of Django.
The decision is based on my 'opinion' on opinionated frameworks.
Pylons and Pyramid is completely running DIY philosophy, it was not really
fun for me (personal preference matter, no argument please). I need to look
around too many things to fix the issues or add new auth system or
framework to it.
I certainly liked Flask in that manner. It is simple and easy.
I code Python from 11:00 PM to 3:00 AM after my day job, so I tend to go
simple one than the Pyramid.
I use SqlAlchemy, Jinja2 along with Flask. With Pylons, I have used Mako
and Sql Alchemy.
