- Duplication avoidance: we have no way to avoid folks from rerunning the 
upgrade if the previous one failed, other thens some words to "not run the 
upgrade twice"

- split of JoeSchmoe stuff and real stuff (sorry :). Upgrading joeschmoe.com 
is easy. It was done rather well, even in PHPnuke.
Upgrading Bryght or web-log.nl[1] is a biatch, if not plain impossble w/o a 
lot of custom code.

I beleive, that unless we provide the proper API stuff (like upgrade) to the 
People That Matter, Drupal will continue being "a nice alternative" but 
nothing more.
