I think that's probably true -- at least in terms of mindshare, even 
though that might not reflect on actual work done.  But, Rails is really 
not a very experimental framework, and the existance of 
continuation-based frameworks for Ruby is an aside.  If such frameworks 
happen at all for Python, I think they will be an aside as well.
