Thanks Manuel,

  Drupal is indeed one of my top choices at this point.  Any 
limitations you've found in the software?  Any gotchas?  I'd 
appreciate anything you could tell me about it.  I've previewed the
administration panel[1] and it seems a bit cryptic, what with the
taxonomies and vocabularies.

  Does anyone else have any suggestions?  I'd still like some 
feedback on:

eZpublish:	http://www.ez.no/
Nucleus:	http://www.nucleuscms.org/
Bitflux:	http://bitflux.ch/developer/cms/
	-- and --
GeekLog:	http://www.geeklog.net/

My requirements are:
- Clean code
- Tableless layout
- GNU licensing (or similar)
- Good support for static pages
- Community building features
	- collaborative authoring
	- forums
	- blogging (rss, commenting)
- Shopping Cart (not a biggie as long as one can be integrated)

Any and all feedback is much appreciated :)
