If there's interest, I'd be happy to present at the October meeting a
talk on new features of Python 2.5 and how to use them.  The timing
seems reasonable since by October Python 2.5 should be have been out
for a month or so.

The talk should be similar to what I'm going to be presenting at
PENLUG on Aug 24 (see
<http://www.penlug.org/twiki/bin/view/Home/WebHome>), shorn of the 2.4
parts [the PENLUG talk is 2 hours, the BayPyggies one, I assume, about
half that], and no doubt more "solidified" based on actual experience
of 2.5 use "in production" (so far, with 2.5 in beta, experience is
necessarily limited to non-production ``fooling around'' use:-).
