Right. I want to put this to bed.
1) If you're complaining off-list, and aren't prepared to go public,  
then you're venting, not being productive. Fine - vent, then we'll  
move on.
2) If you're complaining on-list, without a firm alternative proposal,  
then you're venting. Fine - vent, then we'll move on.
3) If you're trying to re-fight battles of 4 years ago, give it up;  
we're *not* going back there until and unless you can demonstrate a  
custom-coded CMS as mature as Drupal and a winning argument for why we  
should move off of our current LAMP platform. Which is essentially  
point (2) above.
4) If you do have a solid alternative proposal, bring it on, but as  
it'll inevitably be a longer term discussion, don't expect it to  
derail the current effort.
