Interesting :)

I'm speaking right after you on my first attempt for a tilemanagement tool (TileSeeder http://code.google.com/p/tileseeder/ a bit more alpha than I hoped by now though) and after me Till Adams compares mapproxy, tilecache and geowebcache. That should give a reasonable crowd who might be interested in such a BoF :)
