IIRC, Digital Creations are using PTK for some work they're doing for a

checked into the CVS.

It is usable, and it does mostly work. Just, there isn't much
documentation, and it probably isn't clear how to proceed with designing
a site that is too far different from the DemoPortal product supplied
with the PTK.
