Will Askbot and Merengue play nice together?

I set up OSQA to play with and think there is real potential with this type of system. But, what I want is an integrated solution. That is, something that will contain blogs, forums, news and a QandA presence.

I am currently using Drupal for the other stuff. If I am going to write code I would pick Django as the starting point. Beyond that, it seems that Merengue would offer a lot of the basics I need. I am wondering if anyone has tried to run Askbot with Merengue?

Note that while I have a site I want to move it is from Drupal so how I get Askbot to work with other Django apps is totally open. I could, for example, use the Askbot authentication system for the whole game if that seems appropriate.

Haven't used merengue yet but it's django! I'm sure you can share the same database between both apps and play well :-) Or mix it together in one.

Please try it and let us know if there are any problems.

This will be learning on both ends for me as I have set up Merengue but not done anything with it yet but, sure, I will try it out and let you know of any progress.

Yes, the django apps are the easiest to put together, but we also will be supporting integration with the other popular systems - such as Drupal, Wordpress, etc.
