Now, Jeff's points

That's my fault, i suck at making analogies in my own language, let
alone in english, where convoluted sentences make both me and my reader
sweat ;)

I agree with that, whatever rocks your boat is best. I just have to see
any special advantage in CFMX that would justify the price tag, either
when switching from PHP or trying to decide between both in my first day
in web development. Again, that's probably me and if there is something
so good in CFMX to be *really worthy* of paying a CF license, probably
its merits would overcome the $$ issue. If it's 'more or less like' or
'slightly better than', i can live with that :) If i had to leave PHP
planet, i'd like to try the Zope/Python way.
