There's already a couple cage match talks.

"Virtualize vs Containerize: Fight!"

"bzr vs git smack down"

They take the form of a supporter from either side presenting together to give
a more balanced and honest talk.  So if you can find a Rails developer it
allows some give and take rather than just Catalyst beating on a silent Rails
or vice versa.

Alligator sandwich, and make it snappy!
