Not much help, I know, but IMHO, both seriously suck ass.

I can't believe what a hack job cPanel is, considering it's not just  
production software but one of the market leaders too.  I wouldn't  
let cPanel anywhere near a test server, let alone a live server.   
Shockingly bad design, architecture and code.

I've got less experience with Plesk, but based on what I did gather  
from the short time I used it, I'd hate it as well.

I would explore options that use custom interfaces, rather than  
either of those two shitbags.
