I realize I'm coming into this late, maybe too late. But for future
reference, maybe he should take a look at Concrete5?

Wordpress is great for blogs or sites with a front-running blog-like
centerpiece (things like news updates), but I've found it becomes
increasingly more cumbersome the more I want to deviate from that. I
still plan to use Wordpress for some new sites as Concrete5's blog
modules are payware and I have no idea how well they will work with the
tools I usually use for blogging.
