this sounds great. but as somebody already said, please do not mix
up perl and python in one book. although I like Python and Perl (and
Ruby), I think it would be better to do a smaller and cheaper book
which focuses only on python (or Ruby, or Perl)

for example, newriders has a great book called "mysql and perl for the
web"
a book like this covering python + postgresql would be great. I would
definitely buy it.
