Chris! I might have read too much into your post. I kind of jumped the
second half of the first paragraph and then you lost me on the second
paragraph. I apologize for spicing my reaction, and I am sure you have
a great framework, no doubt.
What does worry me however is that one would feel compelled to spend a
lot of time making a "hello world" app look good in your benchmark
when that sample code doesn't represent a real world application.
Maybe one could create a better standardised sample app that is more
representative of the real world and use as a means to compare
different metrics that could be applicable to real world use (such as
performance/scalability and debugging).
