On the framework side, there are a couple but the separation between 
action and render gives problems for some e.g. the Struts portlet 
framework originally double dispatched to the actions (not sure if that 
has been fixed yet).

The other thing that seems ironic is that most of the portlets are 
probably going to be very small implementations and there is a good 
chance that the footprint of the framework will be far larger than that 
of the portlet itself.
