The YAPC::EU schedule has 30 minute slots, but I know the organisers'
intention was for speakers to use 20 minutes, giving time for people to
get to the next talk, the next speaker to set up, and so on.  I may
have some species of noise-making device to signal when your twenty
minutes is up.  I wonder what I can borrow from gellyfish for this ...
