I can't comment on webpy, but yes, Django has a bit more of a learning
curve in some areas, less in others.

For a big project, I'd say it's very worth it. The code tends to read
easy, the people are friendly, the documentation is good for an open
source project, and it's on an upward adoption trend.

No clue. Django seems to be tried-and-true in terms of scalability and
performance, I haven't had to look further.
