Considering you're likely the one that will be implementing it, I'd say
so as you know Zope very well. But they're probably thinking
"strategically" (which IMO is a mistake ;-).

I don't know much about Struts either, sorry. I have never actually
implemented a CMS using Java so I may be the wrong person to speak up.

granted in Zope (declarative security being the big one).
