Really?  Could you elaborate on that, or do you feel that it'd be a
breach of confidentiality to do so?

Shouldn't Wikimania pay for itself?  I could see an argument
otherwise, but I'd say it should.  Ant also suggests that it should.

That seems to me to be a means, not an end.  Although I'd disagree
with Ant in that I'd say the same thing about Wikimania.  But maybe
I'm misunderstanding her email.
