I am +1 to both of these - with a couple of caveats.

1. The old portal contains at least a minimal amount of portal 
administration functionality. The new portal contains nothing.
2. The new portal documentation is poor. We are currently trying to figure 
out how to heavily leverage it and there is no documentation on Aspects, 
rendering, when and how the various stylesheets are invoked and how they 
relate to the various portal.xml files.   Currently, the only way to figure 
it out is to modify the sample portal in a piecemeal fashion and see what 
happens - and then look at the code to figure out why.  This takes a LONG 
time. In short, the portal documentation on the web site needs to be 
improved to discuss some of the internals (especially since there are no 
administration tools).
