I'm not sure I understand you but I think you might be talking about
what I'm thinking about and reading about in compent software
architecture (book I'm reading).
Actually, if most of these CMS just used Classes (properly) and used a
template system then you'd have half of the ball game. I've worked on
some CMS in PHP and they drive me nuts. I think you'll find that most
PHP stuff is just slung together.

Been reading more about it but have not absorbed near enough to
But hey, just good Class design would be a great place to start. Not
that I'm that great myself, but I see that as a quick, early win in the
ballgame to really re-use stuff.
I've only got one framework in PHP on that site so far. Most are Perl
systems. But of course the site itself uses GeekLog which is certainly
easy to setup but I just haven't had much time to see how easy it is to
extend. It doesn't use Smarty or any better template system and for
that reason I'm leery. But I like it better than Nuke which a customer
is using and I've had to work with.
