If we're looking to permanently align schedules, then +1 for UDS on Nov
5-9.  Many of us have kids and it would not be pleasant to set things up
such that we *always* miss Halloween.  The week before Thanksgiving
might work, but seems like some people get hit by Ubuflu or Icelandic
volcanoes or whatever, so guess it could be risky for folks.
