It's suitable for experimentation.  It lacks error message templates, and 
peak.web.templates only has a few rather primitive components available.

The main things you need to know are:

* How to set up security declarations (without them, you can't publish 

* How to create decorators (subclassing web.Decorator adapters to create 
custom "views" of your classes)

* How to use "resources" (templates, images, etc.)
