In some cases, they're already *at* linux.conf.au (GNOME, PostgreSQL, some
coverage of Free Culture issues, etc), but then we've also "segmented the
market" (eek) with OSDC for web/script stuff and LWE/CeBIT for business. I
don't think linux.conf.au can be everything to everyone it already serves
either, so I forsee further hatchlings spawning from the main conference.

(Also, we're taking miniconfs more seriously for 2007, and supporting a
small multimedia developer meeting ahead of the main conference. Spawning
hatchlings is already well underway!)
