http://tangocms.org/ is my personal preference, but then I'm bias, 
there's a good few hundred LoC in there by me!

A couple of notes:
  - I've never tried it without js, but looking at my site/the demo site 
it doesn't use any js for most pages... The only places it seems to use 
it are in the AdminCP
  - SSL isn't enabled by default, you can tweak that though

Should do everything else you need, if you need a hand give me a bell :)
