[XML-SIG] Maki: great!

I just discovered Maki (http://maki.sourceforge.net/), thanks to Nicolas
Chauvat. Please, allow me to congratulate Sam Brauer for this very
interesting project and thank him for having donated this high-quality
software to the public domain.
Now, a few comments:
1) I found interesting the idea to use embedded Python code for creating
dinamic XML pages. I think this solution is simpler and probably faster to
process than the complicated XSP (XML Server Pages) used by Cocoon (see:
http://xml.apache.org/cocoon) but I would like to hear the opinion of the
other partecipants of this list regarding this topic. Is an embedded
scripting language better than a XML-compliant page format for creating
dinamic web pages? How about content/logic separation? How about developer
2) On the basis of Maki, it would be a very good idea to develop a "Portal
system" like "Cocoon Portal" (see:
This would make much easier and faster to create Python/XML/Maki-based web
sites and would allow for a wider acceptance of these technologies. Anybody
is thinking/working on such a system?
3) Does anybody use Maki in a production environment? How about performance
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
