So were any Zope talks/tutorials accepted?

FWIW, Tres had a BFG talk accepted, and Carlos had a BFG talk and a BFG 
tutorial accepted.  I proposed a talk about profiling that didn't make it.

The TG guys had one talk accepted.

Not sure about Pylons.

I assume Django had a bunch, but I don't know for sure.
