Well, I was concentrating more on implementation hassle.  But I
was thinking in terms of Python, not PHP.

Zope seems huge to me too.  I'd just use a Python cgi, optionally with
one of the simpler Python template libraries.  Just try to keep things
simple, and never allow access except to authorized, trusted users
(i.e. don't run the app on the open internet without SSL and login
authentication) and you won't have to worry too much about security.
