Page templates are one of Zope's better features.

Perhaps a distributed weblog server supporting the "Blogger
API":http://plant.blogger.com/api/index.html would be a good "killer
app" for Erlang.  "Weblogs":http://newhome.weblogs.com/historyOfWeblogs
are a rapidly growing phenomenon.  They could benefit from Erlang's
distributed, robust cpabilities.
