Regarding the SimpleTAL, can you give me an example of one of your heinous URLs and explanation why you had to do it that way?

FWIW, I recently complete a CMS project with the following constellation:

1) Apache with mod_python
2) PostgreSQL for content storage, mostly in the form of blob'd Pickles
3) Templating using SimpleTAL (elegant and leightweight, but requires some
downright heinous URLs)
4) Everything running behind Squid in accelerator mode

It's pretty dang snappy on performance, but you'd need a dedicated
server/processor for dynamic images, I would think.
