Logging should be reversible, and any parsing should take advantage of 
the formatting that is specified. And it would be nice if we could read 
the logs created by the standard logging module, for example. Perhaps in 
fact, such support out there exists? Or there are best practices to be

Here are some topics I'm interested in:

    * Working with large data sets: NetworkX, NumPy, SciPy, CDF, HDF
    * Working around the GIL. It's interesting to see that Sun is
      finally giving Java decent hardware support with 8 core by 8
      thread CPUs! But we have the GIL, which can be rather limiting.
    * Implementing extensions, in C or RPython

Maybe others are interested in them too ;)
