Leo Outline Editor

As I read at:
http://webpages.charter.net/edreamleo/front.html

Leo is...

* A general data management environment.
Leo shows user-created relationships among any kind of data:
computer programs, web sites, etc.
* An outlining editor for programmers.
Leo embeds the noweb and CWEB markup languages in an outline
context.
* A flexible browser for projects, programs, classes or any other
data.
* A project manager.
Leo provides multiple views of a project within a single
outline.
Leo naturally represents tasks that remain up-to-date.
* Portable. Leo runs on Windows, Linux and MacOS X.
* 100% pure Python. Leo uses Tk/tcl to draw the screen.
* Fully scriptable using Python. Leo's outline files are XML
format.
* Open Software, distributed under the Python License.

To me Outlines is the best way to organize information on computers
and for managing content for display in web pages.
Some links about Outlining.

I did use Userland Frontier some time ago and I really liked the
Outlines concept.
Frontier is built around outlining for Web content management, object
database, system-level and Internet scripting environment, including
source code editing and debugging.

The creator of Frontier was Dave Winer who wrote or contributed to a
number of relevant specifications, including SOAP, XML-RPC, RSS and
OPML.

But Userland is now focused in Manila:

although since September 2004, Frontier has been released as open
source under the GPL license.

Only Mac and Windows, though.

Thing is I have recently discovered Leo and reminds me a great deal of
things I liked about Userland's Frontier such as being an outlining
cms with a native oodb.
With the advantage that is Platform-Independent, among many other
things.

My question is whether anyone has used Leo for Web Development as
well.?
