last Pycon's unicode talk wasn't very good at all.  I actually walked
away from it more confused.  But it was very popular because unicode
is easily *the* most annoying thing about Python and the hardest thing
to wrap ones head around.  However, something to consider is that
unicode will change so drastically in python 3 so I'm not sure how
relevant a talk will be.  It will be more relevant at this Pycon than
2009 Pycon, that's for sure!
