I you're going the python route, then go the full monty:
To list a few good points of zope, revision control, it will
allow multiple people to work on the site at once.
It will allow you to undo mistakes.
You can work on your own private copy of the site so the
public one will be unaffected by any mistakes you make,
then when you're happy with your changes you can implement
You can give people editing access to only the area of the site
they are maintaining. They don't need shell access to make
It lets programmers and web designers work on the site in their
own areas of expertise.
etc, etc, etc.
It does require a bit more cpu, but you can stick it behind a

every hit when the database might only change a few times a day)
You can write modules in perl if you feel the need.
