Based on the sum of the reviews, I'll need to make final selections. In 
the events where it's not obvious what those selections need to be, I'll 
come back to the folks who have indicated that they care about a 
particular track, and clear my selections by you guys.

There are a lot of people doing general "this looks interesting" 
reviews, including myself. Hopefully this will result in an eventual 
clear picture. If it doesn't, see above.

Meanwhile, I presume that if someone submits a talk, they themselves 
think it's a good talk.
