This could end up getting divisive, as Stefano suggested before.

In some cases it is a matter of taste, not capability.

For instance, (ignoring the fact Woody is currently going through major 
review) the choice between say JXForms and Woody is one of which 
paradigm you prefer, not which one is 'better', because they are both 
perfectly capable of doing the job well.

I am not sure that 'activity' in itself is an accurate metric. Woody 
may look more 'active' but that would be because JXForms does not have 
much work left to do on it.
