	That's not a whole lot of time for people who need to secure funding
	and/or approval to ATTEND the event.  Yes, for attendees who are
	presenters, or who have a standing ability to register, it probably
	doesn't matter.  But for those of us (especially academics) who have
	to share the content/abstracts of scheduled sessions with those who
	decide whether to permit and/or fund our attendance, three days (over a
	WEEKEND even) are nowhere near enough time to present the
	justifications and secure the necessary support.   It slams those
	who can least afford it with an additional $200 just because we have
	to beg for it.

	And no, I'm not talking about STUDENTS.  When I say "academics" I'm
	talking about staff members responsible for running installations of
	Apache projects in production shops at academic institutions.
