15-20 minutes is fine, I was just following a model that has worked  
for other Lucene meetups, but I guess those were capped around 20  
minutes.  Since the topics are a bit more involved, I wanted to make  
sure the speakers had time.

-1 on parallel tracks.

Would be good to get some food involved, too.

setting, I think.
