The race condition happens if someone wants to benefit from the
discounted rate for a speaker *and* take part into the community voting.
It could be argued that someone who submitted a talk should not take
part into the voting process. In that case, there would be no race
Or he/she can decide to pay the full ticket price and take part to the
voting process, giving up the discounted rate he would have access to if
his/her talk is later accepted.
This compromise has worked out pretty well in PyCon Italy, but maybe
numbers are different in EuroPython.
All in all, we are pretty flexible. If you buy a full ticket, do the
voting, and later ask for a partial refund, we won't let you down. There
is just no streamlined process for this, that's all.
 In fact, in 2010 about half of the speakers bought the full ticket
anyway to support the event.
