Until now I haven't really been able to encapsulate my feelings towards Wordpress, but this hits most of the big points. One can really only do so much with custom post types and custom fields before the question has to be asked if it would better to build a new CMS.

Rolling a custom CMS every time a client needs something isn't really a good, flexible solution. There are other options out there, like CMSes built on top of existing frameworks (e.g. Diem or Sympal, which are built on Symfony), but I'm not really sure how viable those are. I am curious if anyone else has other ideas...
