Nathan Torkington at O'Reilly asked for proposals covering the following:

"The two areas that I'd specifically like to get more proposals are core
knowledge (e.g., data structures, standard library, OOP, processing internet
email, testing, threading, GUI programming) and recent advances in the
Python world (new modules, new core stuff, new community stuff)."
