I just gave it a go. From download to completing the 20 minute wiki, the 
timestamps on my filesystem say 30 minutes - I guess I read/type slow ;-)

FWIW, I went to the RoR talk at Euro OSCON, and as far as I can tell (having 
now done the tutorial), they really are more or less equivalent. 

I'd definitely give it a go if I were you. I might have a bit more of a play 
between now and the Python Meetup Manchester[1] (hint, hint ;-) .

(I'm half tempted to ditch using the port of cgi_app that I use on a handful 
of projects now as a result of this, *IF* it'll work on sourceforge...)
