Point taken, I just added the Event Type "Keynote", so one can make sure
such events get something special in schedule.
*Of* course that leaves us with the timing problem. While usual
conferences do their keynotes at the beginning of the day - I wouldn't
expect that to be the best time for a DebConf Keynote.
More like - start the afternoon session or even end the day with a Keynote.

But money *does* buy access at DebConf. In a limited form, our sponsor
pack shows what, but it does do so.
I'm convinced that the ftpmaster team are ninjas -- they do their stuff,
but they do it quietly and behind the scenes, so everybody thinks
they're asleep at the wheel...)
