    I can't comment on scalability for the likes of slashdot, but swish-e certainly worked well for the site we deployed it on. Its parsing is quite good (for HTML, XML, and whatever you can parse programatically so it can grab data from SQL) and the output is quite flexible (your choice of templating systems); it wasn't too tough to make very nice looking output.

    We're not using SWISH::API under mod_perl, so I'm curious about whether it can stand up to slashdot's load.
