I think it's not quite harder that learning to *really* use some PHP
framework (rather than "kitchen made PHP" :-)
Ruby is a nice and clean language.

Some good PHP framework is probably ok too, yes.

It may.
But it may also miss the "rupture" factor needed to really adopt a new
way od doing things.

Which seem to be missing from the Zend Framework according to the
comparison chart (I haven't tried any of them, by the way, and it may
not be up to date with features of each one).
One with an integrated authentication framework would probably nice,
I know, these things can also be added/done another way/..., but what is
the point of wanting to use an established framework if you do all by
yourself ;)
