I agree on both points.  I feel that the each EuroPython (perhaps
unsurprisingly) has had a higher profile outside the immediate
Python/Zope world than the last and this is good and should continue,
but I have no idea how to accelerate it...


  Guido (like us!) is a bit schizophrenic here: he wants to be a
  benevolent dictator, but also wants to treat people like
  grownups. This probably worked better before Python got a large
  American audience <0.9 wink>.             -- Tim Peters, 10 Feb 2000
