preferring 1.5 or 1.4.. The same reason why some choose py2.7 over 3.0! For
some reason if we want to integrate a 3rd party app and if they don't
support 1.5 yet.. its going to trouble us!

Actually I heard of IPython but never looked into it clearly.. Will go
through it now. As far as I know its an web-based python console.. with
lots of features. So, using it helps us run snippets directly on the site..
is that right?

Yeah, we will be using django caching framework for it! Since there seems
to be lot of other caching mechanisms, I thought to put memcache (most
efficient than others) specifically to avoid confusion. that's it.. May be
we can take sometime deciding which caching mechanism is good for us!!
