Looks like it will be me giving the talk then (although
its not too late to change that if needed). I've attached
the abstract as it stands, assuming we get a talk slot
then we'll be able to make some revisions during the
review process (the BOSC review panel may have
comments to address).

Feedback from you all is welcome too of course.
