Yikes!  I *didn't* mean Zope, as it doesn't qualify for the
term 'enterprise application framework' as I used it above,
but I *should* have meant Zope, because upon revisiting the
rubyonrails.org site, I see that it is a *web* framework.

No idea how I missed that key word.  Perhaps the MVC part
grabbed my eyes and filtered the rest of my reading (which
was admittedly brief).  Perhaps I was just on drugs.  Was
that a Saturday?  Yes, it was definitely the drugs.  Today
I'm on *different* drugs, the pretty blue ones, and I'm
feeling much furrier, thank you.  Down, Shadowfax, down!
Oh, the spiders are crawling up my legs!  They're coming
to take me away, away! to the funny farm, where life is
