Blame it on me :)
I got the idea on Saturday evening while having a beer with Dario and 
some other guys. We had a brain storming about the future of EP and I 
remembered that a friend of mine has told me about the usage of python 
at CERN.

I had a little conversation with him over ICQ. He is studying at the 
same university as I but he is at the CERN right now doing some 
research. He started asking some people very inofficially and we got 
positive results at the beginning of this week.
We decided not to make it public over all because we didn't had a yes 
from either the EP team nor the official CERN staff.

On the other hand it's very good that you didn't announced it at the 
last key note. Having the EP 2005 at CERN won't be easily possible 
because the time is too short but EP 2006 is likely possible.

I'm going th join the Plone sprint tomorrow and AFAIK Dario will be 
there, too. So if you want to talk about EP at CERN come to get me. I'm the 
  guy with long hair and glasses.
