Sure, absolutely. That is a variant of what I've proposed for FOSDEM
2011. However, at FOSDEM, schedule is quite packed, so I believe the
best chance would be to actually use one of the available 1 hour slot in
the cross-distro room, as I doubt people would be able to have a
discussion slot spontaneously otherwise.

FWIW, we might even organize a proper cross-distro Sprint. In that case,
Debian will be happy to contribute some money to enable people to attend
[1]. Of course, it would be nice if participants from other distros will
ask their own distro some sort of sponsoring to attend :) All it takes,
is a volunteer organizer (hint, hint!).
