[Baypiggies] Python on OpenMoko

It seems like a lot of folks are wanting to touch/play with these
devices.  Would people be up for a 'scripting night'?

This could either be a regular BayPiggies event, or I could host a
kid-friendly event at the Santa Clara Round-table Pizza.  It's a low
key pizza joint with a play space for kids, wi-fi, and free meeting

I would envision some OLPC XOs to hack Python on, a Nokia S60 or two,
an OpenMoko, and Python on the myrid little devices people have

What's the interest level 1-10?  For a scripting/beer thing 1-10?
