I like listening to podcasts while I exercise, and I just listened to  
a good one on this subject:
"Software Engineering Radio - the podcast for professional software  
"Episode 104: Plugin Architectures"  dated 7/20/08.

I don't think it deals with python at all, but it did bring up a  
number of issues I might not have considered.
It might be worth a listen.
