I think this is a great idea - at least a one or two day codefest if not a
full hackathon.

Finding a place for us all to meet/code may be difficult midweek. It
depends how many people can make it. a pre-GMOD meeting on sunday 14th
would be easier.

I will actually have some prototypes to show by this time
