It is not clear that he can make this; he says travelling with Orljin is
difficult.  On the other hand, Gbg does indeed have nice things to do
for non-techies.  He asked me to impress him.

This leads to -- do we want a 'family option'?  It might be nice to
organise things for people who bring their families here.  Just outlining
the non-conference attractions would be a good idea.

I'd like to invite Patrick Ball, the coder who caught Milosevic using
Python.  see: http://www.wired.com/news/print/0,1294,51106,00.html

Right now I am not sure how you find Patrick Ball.

Tim Peters is another option.
