Sure, sure.

Just for the record, in case we get other people interested in running a BoF, 


a BOF is defined as:

BOF stands for: Birds of a Feather. This is typically a loosely organized 
gathering of people interested in a particular subject. Often called the 
hallway tracks at other conferences. A BOF is similar to a discussion, in that 
it is not a talk, or a panel, but a loosely organized discussion amongst like-
minded individuals working on a particular subject. A BOF should be lead by 
someone who coordinates the time and place, and keeps the discussion going. 
The person leading a BOF is not responsible for giving a talk, in fact is 
discouraged from doing so, it is not a BOF if one person talks to a group of 
people, that is a talk.

For JVM languages, we can also have a panel...
