Thank you.  Very interesting.  I'm not at all keen on Drupal having
maintained a number of drupal installations at BYU.  But your comments
on CMS are indeed valid.  Guess what I asked for is pretty complicated,
so the solution is bound to be a bit more complex.  I will look into
CMSs.  Any good CMS's written in Python?  Looking right now at Pinax...
