Having had the "pleasure" of trying to make the original implementation 
work I fully agree that Plone by itself is probably not the problem. 
The problems are...

- half-hearted "integration" of the Plone components (it is more or 
less slapped on)

- faulty migration process that left a large part of the content either 
broken or not integrated (HowTos for example)

- badly implemented migration process that migrated within the same 
ZODB with the result that the ZODB itself is damaged (you should seee 
those ZEO server logs, they are scary) and all the old content and 
software is still left in there with everyone too scared to try and 
remove it for fear of hidden dependencies.

Removing Plone would not solve much. I'm sorry, this just is *not* a 
viable foundation to work with, period. What we have now is duct tape 
and bailing wire.
