Au contraire, we should bring the Polish here.  They have a well proven
ability to change even diabolically evil systems with disruptive
tactics, so helping promote FOSS should be a walk in the park for them.
With suitable forays into the local visa office, we may even be able to
avoid the people smuggling problem.
