The Basset thread obviously prompted this. Jim mentioned Basset gets
compared with CDBI a lot, but I wouldn't call CDBI a application
framework. TT and Mason I'd call templating engines, good a generating
forms (web or paper) based on variables and input. Maypole too, I've
been lurking on that mailing group, seems like a 2nd generation
templating system (that is it does a lot of the grunt generation based
on some setup stuff, to produce web pages)
what is the litmus test for something to be a application framework?
