Alternatively, counting Google hits:

rails python django             112,000
rails python subway              81,600
rails python turbogears  32,000

This isn't exactly "buzz", of course, but it's SOME measure of "critical
mass" -- and with django about equal to subway+turbogears, it does not
appear to show any emerging dominance.  A significant measure of "buzz"
might be obtained by redoing the same search in, say, two weeks, and
noticing the deltas...
