I've recently befriend Rael Dornfest, too. He's had to apologize, as

The World Health Organization <http://www.who.int/> uses it to manage
their content, as does a company called Dimensional Fund Advisors (see
Primedia/About.com uses it to manage the online content for about 60 of
its magazines, and I'm currently working with Mac|Publishing to get
them managing the content of macworld.com and maccentral.com in
Bricolage. That should go live in a few weeks.
Bricolage isn't a web server, though; it's more of a publishing
platform. You can use its templating to write out any kind of files you
need, and then it distributes them to your web server(s). So you can
have it generate, e.g., JSP documents and send them to a JSP-enabled
web server. No one need ever even know that the content is managed in
Bricolage behind the scenes.

Bleah, no. We use TEXT fields a lot. But since content is broken up
into discreet chunks (as fine as you like, really), it seldom takes up
much space in any given database row.
