Well, what you say applies to Plone ;-)

Zope can be pretty lightweight if you just use plane ZPT, python scripts 
and ZSQL methods. When building those kinds of apps, I've never needed 
to do any explicit caching.

But, for what you're talking about here, maybe running a seperate 
appserver is a step too far...
