It is a lot more flexible than Rotterdam. It is however constrained by the 
slots Rotterdam provides, since all the default ZMI views are in reality 
written for Rotterdam. Roger has developed much more flexible skins that do 
not conform to Rotterdam slots that have tiny main templates and do 
everything with viewlets (similar to what Jeff described in his response).
