I'm not entirely sold on the practicality of this. So many of the
legacy platforms need some random piece of hardware to test on, and
having people drag that with them to Chicago seems awkward.

But I'm willing to entertain the thought and see where we end up. We
would need a rough todo list and a list of people that would need to
be in the room for the thing to be productive.

(I wonder if it would make more sense to colocate something like it
with the Linaro Connect in California this fall instead).
