I use different bits for different reasons. I use logkit, and parts of 
excalibur just got because they are little components that fill a small 
focused need. I try to stay away from components with two many dependencies.

When I use Phoenix it is mainly just because of the ease of development and 
RAD like features it provides.

I use Framework so I have to think less. Usually if I am doing something 
stupid Framework will make it difficult for me ;) Usually this alerts me to 
the fact that I should be doing it a different way (whether I actually do it 
a different way is another thing altogether). That said there is areas in 
Framework I don't like and have never used or only use rarely - But because 
it is relatively easy to ignore those bits - I do ;)
