I have been working with python/jython last couple of months (off and on, for a year).  I would like to get involved(it is either this or JBoss) at some point.  Anyway, currently I would like to use it for my GIS related work(http://www.esri.com(software)) and also JBOSS, Hibernate and other related J2EE tasks.  I see real growth in that area for a language like python.
And I am assuming jython doesnt work with tools like twisted yet?
And lets build community, I suggest freenode.net(I am there now, freenode is cool!).
