If WebGUI didn't already exist, and I was starting it today, I'd probably start with 
Basset or something like it. I certainly wouldn't start with Mason.

You said in a previous post that it's not just a web app framework. So I guess writing 
something non-web related would be a good example. For instance, maybe you want to write 
a network app like a tiny chat server. Or perhaps you want to write a logging daemon 
with it. From the web side, I think a simple page publisher kind of thing that required 
a login to publish, but not to view, would be a good start. Though there are already 
10,000 of those out there. I can't really come up with good examples for you though cuz 
I'm not sure what the intention of basset was when you wrote it. Only you know that.
