It would ;-)

Maybe we should talk at some point, but I would like to roll out a
little content management system for maintaining my home page (do not
look at it right now, it sucks), but I want a mechanism to maintain and
update this.

ASP.NET seems like the natural choice, because you could have a
`BlogRender' component for example.

Yes, I think a full implementation is still six months away.  There are
pieces here and there, and we are working on various areas of the
problem, but I would not like to deceive you.
