Don't worry - it will have a nice friendly title by the time I present it.
I'm currently aiming for OSCON, which isn't until August. It's going
to be aimed at people who _know_ Python, but aren't necessarily 
experts, and focus not just on performance, but maintainable and 
sane code (for instance, not many people seem to realise that 
__del__ methods are almost always not the right answer to a problem).

Nah - I have a bunch of ideas kicking around in my head, something
will pop out. I doubt I'll ever be able to top the title of my pycon talk,
