The Genshi tut[1] uses CherryPy, and should be pretty "wowing" for primarily
php-devs, you could probably get some good ideas from there.

The biggest wow reactions I've gotten from php devs from showing them python
were when I showed them decorators (and explained how they work), and when I
showed them "raise cherrypy.HTTPRedirect('/somepath')".
