There were no examples demonstrating that...  Sure, I'd love to spend a
couple of weeks getting really familiar with all the different web
application frameworks out there so that I could really make an informed
decision based on the implementation of a represenative application.
However, if I had 3 months off work I'm not sure I'd spend it re-writing
a web app a dozen times...  :-)

Adding complexity to every page in a complex application is also a
serious problem.  It means that every time I have to look at some page
code, I have to understand what's going on in this setup code.  It also
means that if I set up one page that has different setup code, I'm
likely to miss it unless I read all the code fairly carefully.

I *LIKE* systems that take care of the common things for you.  

 Language is the most important .. uh..  I think you know what I'm trying
