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.
