People who are just curious about us will probably not come to
ApacheCon two weeks after W-JAX, sure. But honestly, people who only
get to go to one conference a year have probably blown that budget on
Berlin Buzzwords already :-)

The people I'm concerned with are our EU-based committers,
proto-members and members, who have shown in the past a huge desire
for an EU conference. These people are prepared to put in a
sometimes-surprising amount of effort to get to ACEU--witness Mark in
this thread saying he'll try to attend parts of both even if they're
the same week.

We should make it possible for those people to attend, even at the
cost of not having US folks. Otherwise we're kidding ourselves that
this is an EU show.
