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.
