Thanks for the links, Fred. Though I know that CakePHP is about PHP,  
it puts me off using a development tool, when I go to the project  
website and within two clicks start finding programming errors or  
oversights! (Namely, Javascript errors and an comments section full  
of spam, which is fairly easily blocked these days. I know this  
doesn't have any direct association with the "product" but it does  
give a poor first impression of the developers who have created it,  
which would make me question the stability of their project!)
