After a short analysis, my conclusion is that using a CMS we lose more than we 

We can add to the current architecture, design and features what be needed. We 
have already support to a lot of CMS features (see the detailed report at ) and it is 
easy to add more.

It is just my personal opinion.

Key points:

  * The use of the Affero GPL or GPL v3 is a must to a
    webapp. We want be able to release the source code
    without the risk of a fork and lock with the GPL v2.
    We do not use GPL v2 due to it does not cover use of
    software over a computer network. GPL v2 has legal
    holes about it. You know.

  * We are already using a localization architecture
    which is very good for us purpose.

  * PHP 5.x OOP support.

As result of your feedback we have already improved the login box, and we have 
taken note of a lot of CMS features which we could develop.

Thanks for your feedback!,
