What's the point behind blending the python.org maintenance requirements 
and those of a conference planning group?  It strikes me as setting the 
bar high enough to make it more than likely that no solution will be 
especially good for either task.  I'd much rather solve the conference 
related processes completely independently of the website maintenance.

If things like mandating Zope or any particular solution become the way 
things are done around here, I'll have to bail.
