We may be a little late to the party on this, but if there is still
time / room to set up another track, I am +1.

I thought about suggesting a pool/dbcp talk for the tomcat track,
but it would probably be better to do this as part of a commons
track, if we can get that organized in time.

I could also do something on math if we have critical mass to do
some other talks and can still get this in.

Sally - is is possible to still add a track?

All - any other volunteers / ideas?
