@Giovanni: Is this payment system tightly integrated with the rest of the
website or could it be replaced (e.g. externalized)?

@Filip: For the German PyCon conferences we built our own system that is
based mostly around django-cms. Right now we are updating it for PyCon DE
2013 and it is available on https://bitbucket.org/PySV/pycon_de_website if
you're interested :-)
