I've used it too -- it does help you figure out why pages are slow, etc. 
Like an Admin Listing page in Satchmo taking  1400 queries to bring up.

Django is an interesting beast -- it's a subset of Python but sometimes 
keep knowledge of Python can hurt more than help. I have manage a fairly 
large Satchmo site (ecommerce engine for Django) and the site stuff 
wasn't hard, but the offline processes that re-do inventory and 
processes every night have been troublesome. I had to learn how to 
manage transactions, clear the DB cache, etc.

For the record, the site is:
http://www.powerhousetoolparts.com/ <http://www.powerhousetoolparts.com//>

(I take no credit for the design -- I purely did the backend).
