Okay.  Work well to what purpose?  Do you want to obtain a deeper level 
of understanding about the subtler aspects of web development (hence 
writing your own framework is probably a good task) or is speed of 
development a bigger concern?  Are you designing for cross platform 
(mod_perl/ISAPI/etc) compatability or can you not afford to sacrifice 
any performance hit at all?

why are these the attractive options?  might be worthwhile listing the 
advantages/disadvantages that you see in these and see if anyone else 
can think of other points.
