d) raising the price, while perhaps keeping the numbers down to a socially
useful level, would more than likely turn away much of our core audience, so
the conference would end up sucking

e) the (ample) profits go to Linux Australia for the good of the community,
and the conferences ROCK THE CASBAH already, so it's not like we need to up
the price for any reasonable reason anyway

f) the reasonable prices are part of the whole "BEST CONFERENCE EVER"
