This is an interesting  thread given something I just read at work
this evening.  There is a Java group that needed something that
allowed them to move faster than Java allowed.  They chose rails over
a python solution.  One reason was they claimed there were 15 python
web/templating solutions and 50 java ones.  Rails was an easy choice
because there was no need to figure out which was the best.  I
understand this argument cuts both ways (I've used both sides in the
past).  I'm curious what people here think.

Someone else mentioned that rails is the killer app for ruby that
python still doesn't have.
