What, if anything, could get you guys interested in looking at it? I know that right now it's just Yet-Another-App-Framework. What'd be exciting? What would make you think, "Hrm, that might be worth checking out?"
I want to grow this thing into a community and hopefully make a lot of people's lives easier, but I haven't a clue how to do it.
Where should I start?
Um... give up? That was my first thought. You took too long to release it, and in your rather long and verbose discussion here you have very little to say in it's favor compared to all of the other guys out there that got theirs out first.
I realize you're asking us to tell you what we're looking for, but what do you think? We want to hear about how it'll speed development, and make maintenance easier. And I personally, want to see benchmarks about how it behaves under heavy load compared to other approaches (though for some reason the "web app framework" crowd doesn't seem to be worrying about that).
Another thing that people like to hear about is success stories... Mason is in use at Amazon, Bricolage is used at Salon. What sites have you implemented with this framework?

Snippets of code should be wrapped in

tags should generally be avoided. If they must

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
