Possibly. I worked with pre 1.0 versions, then switched to other 
solutions (there were things I didn't like that much in Django... 
personal taste, not a criticism).

I meant it was more oriented toward *building* CMS - not that it was a 
CMS by itself.

And as far as I'm concerned, I would not use Plone without *really* 
needing such a heavyweight thingie (and yes, I do have recent working 
experience with Plone...).
