... which can be further dispelled by using Jython or IronPython (both of 
which run Django just fine, AFAIK). With these, as far as the Enterprise 
System Administrator is concerned, you just give them a Jar file or DLL, same 
as if you had developed in Java or C# respectively, and nobody cares about the 
Python within.

There is one true argument against Python in the Entrerprise, which is 
relevant to you: Java and C# developers are easier to recruit and probably 
cheaper to keep, and that is a very real reason for Enterprises to prefer 
those languages.

In this respect, I got the impression that C#/IronPython integration should be 
smooth (that is, you can give the developers DLLs to call into and they can 
write their C# and everyone is still happy), but Java/Jython less so (calling 
Java from Python is trivial, but not the other way around). But my knowledge 
here is based on rumours.
