That's a lot of frameworks to try & compare and I don't think any one
person would have the time to do more than a couple, but perhaps we
could all agree on some kind of non-trivial, but still simple,
application that we could implement & deploy in the most natural way
for each framework.  It'd probably be easy to just point prospective
framework users to the resulting series of blog posts elucidating the
features of each.

I'd vote for something like a trimmed down reddit clone, something
that I'd expect everyone could do whether they deploy it via Apache or
something that's part of the framework such as happstack-server.
