Speaking for a small web shop that builds using Wordpress, Drupal and Zend
Framework, I couldn't agree with Mike more on all points. While Drupal "does
more", its heavy, bloated and convoluted by comparison. For those of us that
often are happily and productively using Wordpress to do non-traditional
Wordpress types of things, custom post types and more flexible url handling
would be really welcomed.
