Funnily enough, my company's business revolves around a "discovery
engine" which is entirely written in python.  It uses wmi, ssh, snmp
and other technologies to find and gather information from customers'
server estates.  We use omniORB (it's developer works for us),
BerkeleyDB, and a whole host of other technologies.  Perhaps I could
get some of our engineers to present some talks too.  I'm sure one of
them can explain wmi too!
