My penny... everybody who can creates a CMS at some point... how about  
creating a CMS-construction kit where configuration and modifications  
are done in code. Some components are allready available.

I have created a bare bones CMS for a couple of projects I am involved  
in. It is simple and isn't really geared towards website publishing  
but rather content in general. I'd be happy to let you take a look at  
it to see if you can use/abuse some of the ideas. However, right now,  
I can't commit to a project.
