this is an interesting conundrum:  a "killer app" written in Python,
yet no Python is necessary to design a system with it; although being
able to code in Python would allow for optimal flexibility with the

i would agree with a conditional pair presentation.  donna should be
able to give hers as-is, without any Python.  i mean, she is showing
interest in Python just by being on this mailing list.  if anyone else
in the group has mucked with Plone by fiddling with its Python, then
they should give a quicky demo of tweaking Donna's demo site (that she
would've just built in front of everyone).  if no one volunteers, then
we leave donna's presentation in there.  i don't want there *not* to
be a Plone presentation just because we can't find someone who has
coded Python for it.
