Even if that proposed theme is adopted, I don't think that it is too much
of a stretch; O'Reilly do Windows books as well as Unix books, and have
books on tools which are very relevent to the topic (such as Samba).

I don't think that we ought not to be turning people like them down - I'd
certainly be interested to hear what they have to say.

Sounds good to me. If we can rope them in as sponsors then I'd say they
are all the more welcome, surely? :-)
