how did you know? :)  Actually in my group we've got 1 
python/zope/cmf guy (me), 1 lotus/domino guy, and 6 java developers.
There is no .NET here. Of course we sometimes argue over which system 
should handle which task, and of course i think we should be doing a lot 
more python / zope, but in general we do pretty well with this hybrid
setup.  Zope's role is mostly handling presentation 
and content management, and most of the apps are database-driven jsp.

BTW, we don't use any xmlrpc or web services, it's all just server A 
getting an http stream from server B and doing something with it.
