+1  for this (for long time, it must be now carrying interest).
We have mooted this idea here and even tried to pull one
but I guess the planning was not good.

I think a conference where everything down from concept,
planning, motives and finances were open and not
controlled by a secret cabal is what we want.  It should
be for developers, but for anyone who has even written
only one line of code in Python.  Still, it should not be
too generic so that it becomes an unconference.

Also, we will accept all fruits and vegetables,
including high and low hanging, not just people making
omlettes ;)

I think, if we can get a discussion going around this topic,
we can form ideas concrete enough to organize
PyCon India at least in 2010.
