I'd love to see "Python and Java BOF", and maybe one on CORBA.  If we
could hornswaggle Jim Hugunin or Barry Warsaw to talk a bit, that would be
great.  Whoa -- just found Jim's JPython slides[1].  For the
record, his talk at JavaOne was excellent -- thanks!

Basically, Java can bite me, but it has tons of libraries, everything
talks to it, and it has local fatass support.  Switching to JPython sounds
like a win/win, and I need to prove it.

CORBA I havent messed with since Fnorb used to be unstable, I'd love to
hear how it's changed.
