Yes, I am definitely coming, no doubts about it.  Whether I'll get there early 
enough for dinner, I don't know.  It is a long drive from Dallas.

A number of us are carpooling  and we will be staying into Sunday afternoon. 
If there were any sprinting or social opportunities on Sunday, that would be 

I am willing to take on the talk about Python eggs and will proceed accordingly.

I presume that is Python 2.5 and not the old standby 1.5.2. ;-)

I think the only ones I'd like to see added are Setuptools, VirtualEnv, Nevow 
and Durus.  Both are in the Cheeseshop and can be installed (as an admin) with

   wget http://peak.telecommunity.com/dist/ez_setup.py
   python2.5 ez_setup.py
   easy_install virtualenv nevow durus
