Agreed, not much is likely to be lost; but neither is it going to be 
the "lions' mouth" that you were so optimistic about earlier.

And, of course, Mark is right - there's an opportunity cost. We could have had 
a talk about a technology - any technology - rather than a company. Since 
when are LUG talks titled by company rather than technology/project, anyway?
