The trouble with providing the business logic is that it may be more / 
less suited to a framework's approach.
It is nice to see how each framework responds to the same business logic 
But it is important to craft it in such a way that it is flexible.
For example, it shouldn't make too many assumptions about global objects 
being left around between calls as this can vary between frameworks. 
Also, I don't think the business logic should handle the database as 
some of the frameworks handle that...
