I don't have any practical experience with these, but I've done some
research. My impression is that Pylons has more momentum than TG. The
latter project has declared the 1.x branch to be a dead end, and
they're working on a 2.0 branch that's not out yet. I could be wrong,
but that's what I gathered from my reading.

From the reading I did, I gathered that Django was really good if you
want to do what Django is good at, but not as easy to customize as,
say, Pylons. Pylons, on the other hand, is a little more complicated
because it's made of several different parts, but the positive side of
"complicated" is "flexible".

Yes or no, depending on what you're trying to do! =)
