I can't think that *dawn* is a very practical time to get programmers to
meet up. Either at least one would be "I don't do that early" and so it
wouldn't happen, or at least one would stay up late pulling an all-nighter,
and hence would be so tanked up on either caffeine or alcohol that they'd
not be steady enough to hit an elephant at arm's length.
