The problem, though, is that it's not all that easy to do HTML in
Python, especially for non-programmers.  One neat approach is Enhydra,
a Java system, which uses id attributes in HTML tags and then lets the
Java code modify those tags.  Completely separates presentation from
implementation.  OTOH because it is Java, it apparently obeys the
unwritten rule that it must be a beheamoth with a large and complex
API that requires 10x more code to use than it should.... sigh....

I also dislike not storing files in the regular, filsystem way.

OTOH, Zope's inheritance model is quite nice.
