[wp-hackers] WordPress as a full stack web framework

+1 to using WP as a web framework.

Though here's the unique part about WP: Most frameworks serve a single  
application at a time, but most WP users have a handful of plugins  
active at once. The fact that the WP API is sufficiently robust and  
complete to make that work well, while also allowing development of  
sophisticated plugins that add significant new features is the truly  
amazing part. </ fanboy moment>

Scriblio, my WordPress as library catalog system, started out by  
completely highjacking a lot of WP functionality. I've learned a lot  
since my first release a few years ago, but the biggest lesson has  
been to make my plugins well behaved and leave plenty of room for  
other well behaved plugins to interoperate with them.
