Hi, I'm evaluating Orchard. I think it would be useful for general website, but I would like to be able to add mvc section to my website without interference from Orchard (as it doesn't fit into the CMS paradigm, so I don't think it should be a Orchard Module). Is this possible, if so are there any restrictions?

So I could have:


 About - Orchard Page

 Features - Orchard Page

 Blog - Orchard Blog

 App - ASP.NET MVC App (not an Orchard Module)

An Orchard module is just an MVC Area. If you get config and routes right, you should just have to opt your database access out of the ambient Orchard transaction.
