Nothing against scientific applications, but what we Tim and I
originally had in mind was a session where we could discuss
business models around Python, strategies for convincing
decision makers about the values of using Python in projects,
total cost of ownership w/r to Python and Python applications,

In that sense "the Real World" meant: Python in business

So perhaps we need two tracks:

* Python in Business
* Python in Science

I would also propose to have one tutorial day and two
conference days (dropping the dev day). This allows us
to have three tracks on each day.
