[Foss4g2008loc] Blast from Past

When thinking about overall program, it's interesting to go back and
see what happened in the past, and that can mean, farther back...
In '05 I note a couple interesting things that differed from '07.
First, the workshops started an hour earlier and ended an hour later,
for 4 hour sessions. I had people complaining about no break in my 3-
hour session this year, so a 4-hour session would necessitate a
break, but over 3.5 hours of teaching time could be easily gotten.
However, that required an 8am start. (!)
I was interested to note that the program was already 5-tracks wide
in '05, I hadn't really registered that. I hope we can avoid going
any wider again this year.
Finally, '05 kept the opening plenary mercifully brief, only devoting
2 hours to it, and leaving enough space to slip in a round of
concurrent sessions. Again, this necessitated an 8am start.
