If it's any consolation I am downloading Chisimba now.  Hey, let's see
how Nginx handles proxying for YACMS.

You are correct. Apart from the obligatory learn-by-Google I did also
head over to cmsmatrix and compare the CMSs I recognised with phpNuke.
I don't have an eidetic memory so that limited the pool of choices a
bit.  Then I happened to pick up the November 2006 edition of Linux
Journal and read about Planetizen's great experience with Drupal which
pretty much sold me on that; not being all that CMS experienced, an
article in LJ has some influence.  Then, of course, there was this
thread... ;-)
