Good idea. My understanding is that paper proceedings are quite
expensive, but I know that YAPC does them for the sake of "the feel of a
real conference". Personally, I'm satisfied with having the documents
available on a website. I have CD's from all the previous conferneces,
and have never unwrapped them; and I've occasionally read the papers on
paper, but always after the fact in the plane ride home. If it saves
$20 to the cost of admission, IMO it's worth cutting. But getting
broader feedback is the point of this list, so feed back!

There is a joint Python/Zope track. It is up to the program committee
to allocate time. I don't recall if the room allocations have already
been decided (it might be a joint Zope/Python track w/ several parallel
sessions, but I don't _think_ so).
