Bret, the CALU name did not have the same weight within and without the
community. It had been run once before being renamed to linux.conf.au.
On the other hand we are now seeing the seventh iteration of
linux.conf.au and will be announcing the winner of the eighth at LCA08.

The question is do we want to throw away a hell of a lot of goodwill and
brand recognition for little practical gain?
