If we have enough podlings to fill 2 hours with a bunch of 5 minute
slots, sure - I don't think that'll be the case though.  But, we can
compress the time available to the podling as more folks sign up.  If
only one podling signs up, they get 2 hours to talk.  =)

FWIW, ConCom folks have suggested that it be named 'fast track' or
something.  The concept is still the same.  -- justin
