I don't want to rule out Plone if we can hack around the issue (although
you're right; it's a really ugly hack). But we should also be careful; a
hack stays a hack so there's no guarantee that it will work in the
feature. Unless the Plone/Zope developers have anything on their roadmap
regarding this issue we should probably drop Plone. :(

I can't wait! BTW how do you feel about Mambo OS?
(http://www.mamboserver.com) Someone recommended it. Their default
templates suck though.

Glad you're having a blast! :)

Another reason why I find it really hard to drop Plone...
