Good plan, I'd love to participate in/promote/organise/watch this debate,
in a workshop environment, and I'd turn up at ISAC 2006 especially for it.
If I don't make it, I'll send a crate of beer for the participants. As
Derek Davies pointed out, it would make a good topic for a tutorial too, but
perhaps in the aftermath :)
How does one go about organising a workshop?
