This is my hope as well, to have several intermingled web frameworks
running, and allow volunteers to poke into each one, with designated
helpers to answer questions on the various frameworks. The best way I've
seen this done is to simply have links from a page served by framework A
point to another page served by framework B. I would love to see us get
to that point.
