Dear Tim,

This would be a great thing to investigate -- it has been on my
personal todo list for some time to investigate how hard it would be
to convert a standard pylons app for google appengine.

Would you be up for doing a small investigation and reporting back. I
would also be willing to contribute -- I imagine you'll start with a
'fork' of the CKAN mercurial repo and start patching it.
