I think comparing Plone to TurboGears is comparing apples to oranges. 
Plone is a content management system.  TurboGears is a Web application
framework.  Yes, there is some crossover, but they are really very
different.  I built my church Web site <http://myallsaints.org> in
Plone, and wouldn't want to use TurboGears for that.  On the other
hand, I don't think you'll ever see a GUI to design workflow in
TurboGears.  However, TurboGears makes a lot more sense than Plone for
doing CRUD with MySQL.  It's just a different ball of wax.
