Although the plugin wouldn't have a huge number of installs, it could
still be an extremely useful addition to the wordpress community, even
if it just powered the WordCamp systems.
Obviously make it compatible for single installs, but think of the
power of making it multi-site aware... 3.0 allows you to run multiple
blogs off one install, with different subdomains.
Imagine installing this on WordCamp.org, having each subdomain as a
new blog and this plugin powering the conference functionality. Being
able to have speakers assigned to conferences across the network..?
