As you know this sounds good to me. Let me add that i think that
it would be nice to reach outside the Python Web Frameworks
development worlds - not so much thinking about Ruby on Rails
but about Seaside (http://seaside.st) and possibly other approaches
that leverage language features not existing in Python. Inviting
people from those communities (or having a "PyPy possibilities workshop"
within the web track for that matter) may help to divert some
"island" or competition thinking within Python webframework land :)
