I was suggesting a database of sorts of people that are
willing to make presetations on certain topics.  I was
not suggesting that the foundation would subsidize
travel expenses.

My personal opinion (i.e., this isn't a Zope Foundation
position) is the the limited money the Foundation can
spend should be spent in ways that can benefit large
swaths of the community.

I would love to see the Foundation have the recurring
revenue stream to subsidize travel for all kinds of
purposes - getting people together face-to-face is a
substantial ingredient in sucessful open source
communities.  Unfortunately, I don't think the
Foundation is there yet.

Any other ideas.  You didn't respond to the shared
hosting/applications suggestion.  Was that because it's
obvious or a bad idea?
