Maybe we could promise participants a kind of lottery, where the lucky 
winners are granted their pet API feature for 0.7. Or maybe the winning 
lottery tickets each earn you points, and if you collect enough points 
you could request a feature:

10 points ... slight change in existing API call
100 points ... new API call
1000 points ... new database engine

That would surely boost SOTM attendance don't you think?

We would of course make sure that only 999 points worth of tickets are
