I dont think we should pay for family members or *friends _ever_, with the
exception of some accompanying a handicapped person, who cannot travel alone.
It's really not in DebConfs interest. If they volunteer, OTOH I see them as
volunteers, not as friends&family.
AFAIK this year the sponsors hasnt said "we'll sponsor everyone". AFAIK its
like all the years before, where we'll try to sponsor everyone involved in
Debian (or DebConf).
