Believe me you are not the first to comment on this :)

Our intention has been to go down that road eventually AFAIK but it has 
simply been a lack of resources... First step was a major overhaul which 
was done a year ago where we gave trapexit a huge facelift + some tuning.

Until then I guess we will have to live with LAMP until we replace it 
with perhaps LYCE (Linux, Yaws, CouchDB, Erlang-web) :)
