I think we want to encourage companies to bring many people. However, we don't 
want to discount so much that it hurts our budget. For instance, the current 
speakers fee only covers food costs, so I don't think it is reasonable to 
give any further discounts there.

This is what I propose:

If you bring 5 people or more, you can get a 20% discount. No discount on 
student fees and no discount on speakers fees (though speakers count for the 
5 people limit).

I'm right now at the Python UK/ACCU conference, and they have a limited number 
of subscriptions with t-mobile for internet access. This means that I'll 
probably only get short slots in which I can reply to emails in the next few
