I think Dexterity is very lightweight too, and it's quite simple, 
especially if you don't want to use any of the TTW/XML stuff, which is 
entirely optional and only really there to support specific use cases.

Of course, it's not yet released, but the core content type creation is 
both quite stable at this point and quite easy to work with.

Of course, if Spear works for you, all the better, but it'd be great if 
we could work to improve the same story rather than duplicating effort. 
Certainly, if you've got use cases or things where you think Dexterity 
wouldn't be a fit, I'd love to hear about them and see if we can't 
improve Dexterity to meet those.
