Agreed. Unfortunately its too late to adjust this for the event
beginning tomorrow, but we will definitely include breaks at the next
UDS in May. I recommend for this one attendees coordinate breaks
themselves (e.g. for session leaders to propose a 10min break part way
through a session if the attendees need it).
