I figured as much, just needed some confirmation. As I said, the 
decision for a CMS is for the immediate and distant future. So we should 
definitely be aware of migration paths. Well, the "open source" aspect 
takes care of this need :)

I trust on your decision; TAL it is then :)

Thanks for the clarification! I'll look into some more resources. 
Perhaps I'll even setup Zope on my workstation too, to get a hang of it.

Of course not, everything is still related to the website.

Just to get it clear: we are now going to test Plone and Drupal, right?
