That's a sane choice but it destroys your screen cred as a Python web
advocate (if you are one). The web is one of Python's many domains
(given the number of web frameworks etc.) and this from a Python
conference organiser is a clear statement saying that *none* of them
were good enough for him.

If, after this, you try to speak to a technical audience about
developing and deploying websites with using a Python web framework,
they'd be more than just a little sceptical. :)

I don't think there are going to be many web development talks at
*sci*py but if this doesn't come up during the conference, I would be
reappy surprised.
