Yes please!

Thank you for once again taking the initiative on this.  I'll definitely be 
there if there's going to be a GNUstep presence again this year[1].  I was 
thinking about applying to do a main-track talk titled something like 
'Objective-C: Not just for Macs and iPhones' talking about libobjc2, Étoilé, 
GNUstep, and clang, implementation challenges with making Objective-C fast, the 
benefits of the language, and how GNUstep makes it easy to port code to other 

Last year, we talked a bit about trying to organise a group booking for the 
hotel and turning up a day or two early so we got some time for hacking / 
talking before it started.  I'd be interested in doing this, if other people 
are able to get away.
