You aren't differentiating too far from TurboGears at this point.

Actually, I would like to be told. I'm pretty sure that with a decent
explanation, I could follow. Your self-described "gem" is--by you--so
vaguely explained that this whole operation doesn't inspire any
More problems: large form to fill out; huge license agreement; very
little documentation outside of PDF; online demo links to a local IP
address; NOTHING I can find on the website actually runs on Brainwave
Maybe in a few years I'd give this a try, but for now, I'd focus on
releasing something that you are willing to back a bit more. Spend
all your time making your website look good with content that is
available online easily. Don't make it a chore for me to get your
product. If you don't trust your own product enough to run your own
website/blog on it, hide the PHP file extension, and don't put a
banner on your blog proclaiming a competitor's product.
Try not to take this too harshly--I hope it is constructive criticism.
