Well for someone like me (more or less familiar with Plone, already
installed TG but not played very much with it and ended up installing
Pylons for a project) a "what's the best tool matrix" would be neat.  

I see that matrix as some form of use cases for lines and the software
options for columns.  The cell value could be a ranking, since obviously
there won't be a case where Grok or BFG or WSGIPlone or whatever will be
perfect or null for use case X.

[Use] case in point : we're beginning a new project and we're
considering options for web presence.  A quick setup is throw a Trac and
build on it, but I'd rather have a nice (easier to theme) front end on
top of Trac (that would play well with Trac).  Would/could that front
end be Plone (we might have some content to manage one day, but then
maybe not that much .. or will we ?) or Grok or BFG ?  

I know it's very often a matter of personal preference or competence and
a matrix won't be a silver bullet but it would help IMO.  Ease of
deployment at commercial ISP's might be important to mention, but I
understand that most people on this list probably manage their own
