Hi all,

I was looking for a web framework for Pipermail UI. I have decided to 
use Pylons.
Anna and benste wanted to know the reasons for choosing pylons over 
Django (As benste is already using Django for mailman WebUI). So, I 
thought I should discuss it with all of you.

As you know, Andrew is working on converting Pipermail to use 
Storm/SQLite instead of pickles to save data. So, the framework needs to 
have support for Storm ORM. Django has its own ORM and Storm cannot be 
used with it natively (Though storm is said to have support 
for django, I could not find anything further to try/test Storm with 
Pylons doesn't provide any ORM and I have tested a small application 
using Storm.

Please provide your feedback.
