Sure.  I think one of us (maybe Paul?) signed up to write a PasteScript 
to lay out a directory structure something like this.

We don't currently provide an easy way to serve out a static directory full of 
content.  We'd need to add that (or decide not to add it in favor of letting a 
separate "resource" server serve the static stuff).

Sounds good to me.

The plans are to keep BFG mostly policy-agnostic save for
the very basics (graph traversal, a default templating language, and a calling 
and response convention for views).

I had planned to create another package named repoze.lemonade which:

  - Wired in ZODB

  - Defined base classes for folderish and leafish types.

  - Had an object add/remove/move event model.

  - Did indexing of content.

It sounds like Vudo could either build on top of that or just *be* that.  It 
might be better to continue layering stuff, I suppose, without going "straight 
to the content management layer".  Would it be appropriate for Vudo to build on 
something like that?

What would Vudo need out of a framework?
