Myself I think it is any toolkit that provides APIs for user sessions, persistance, 
security, forms (or data input), and other utility functions that allow you to build 
applications more quickly. In other words, you don't have to worry about the basics, so 
you can get to writing your "need-specific" stuff faster.
