I suspect the KSS developers are being spanked a lot from the Plone camp
so that we can iron out the last issues for 3.0 final.
I know Balazs and Godefroid (and I!) care a lot about making KSS have a
wider audience, and I think it's a good fit.
At least, the KSS approach fits my brain. I'm not 100% I'd use it if I
really wanted to build Flickr or something ridiculously AJAX-driven
where it was more "a JS app with some HTML presentation" than "an HTML
app with some JS polish and UI improvements". Maybe I would, but then
writing JS more directly may help. For a lot of the CMS-y type
applications people build with Zope technologies, though, I've found KSS
to be a very good and well-structured approach. It's also easy to work
with and pretty easy to learn.
