That assumes that we have enough people coming (or watching online)
that have never seen Python.  Rather than going through the tutorial
maybe we could have short, focused talks on basic use of specific
libraries, and hit basic Python abilities along the way.  Suggestions
for topics could be "Regular Expressions: Perl vs Python", "Calling a
database from Python", "Using SWIG to call a C library".  For people
who do these things they are low level and simple, for the rest who
have never had a reason to do them they create a short stumble when we
first try them.
