Thanks Kutlu,

I wasn't aware that Google used Python for running their Google groups
servers. Can you confirm that? The only place
I've seen Google explicitly use Python on their web front end is in
the Google Ads tests.

I am impressed by the responsiveness of lawrence.com, ljworld.com and
others on the Django home page (http://www.djangoproject.com/)

They seem to do a great job of loading large, complex pages using
Django (stacked on Python, stacked on bytecode, stacked on C.)
Shows it can be done.
