I have used Mambo on Cobalt, for a client of mine, but not on
BlueQuartz.[1]  I am not familiar with the Plone solution, but last time
I checked it required much heavier work that Mambo did.

Well, Mambo can be installed by simply unpacking into the web folder of
the virtual host directly, and creating an appropriate MySQL database.

It took me about three hours to write a simple script that would unpack
a Mambo tarball into the web directory of a virtual host, create the
MySQL database, then update the Mambo configuration .php file.

Mambo just runs like any other PHP database driven application, so it
pretty much just works.  No interference across virtual hosts, etc.

Anyway, between that and the number of other clients of mine running it
to manage their business websites, I would certainly recommend the Mambo
system to you.
