On all of these items, I can certainly help with providing answers to
questions that a speaker may or may not know about currently. I don't know
if I will be able to give any talks myself; my PyCon plans (if any) are not
I do suggest you ask Kevin Dangoor and Ian Bicking if they are interested;
both of them are good at presenting the stuff I dreamed up a year or so
before, whereas I tend to present stuff I'm still in the middle of
I also think you might need to break the first talk into two talks, unless
the timeslots for talks have expanded significantly this year. :)
