mais oui! also, taking it all off-list deprives us of the inevitable
this vs. that wars, i.e., TurboGears vs. Django, etc.

(I'm mainly just being obnoxious here, but the truth is if you observe
what the main points of contention in those sorts of debates are, you
do actually get a good idea of what the motivating design principles
are too. I'll even admit to provoking those little battles once in a
while just to see what happens. all that "my favorite muppet kicks
your favorite muppet's ass!" stuff can actually be quite informative.)
