*If this happens*, what do people think would be the best time slot/
arrangement?  We haven't generally had 'keynotes' beyond the short slot
for a DPL speech at conference dinners.  The highest profile in the
conference timetable would come from a slot at the beginning of the
conference, but many people tend to arrive a day or two late, or just to
be very tired after travelling.

Some other conferences tend to have keynotes to start each day, but if
we did that Debian types would probably sleep through them -- maybe the
DebConf equivalent slot would be just after lunch?
