Don mentioned that.  However, something specifically Haskell and aimed
at a wider audience than just the Portland area is desirable.  It's also
a different tone than a user group.  Hopefully, there would be a reprise
next year in a different location.  That said, I imagine many of those
going to pdxfunc would be interested in AmeroHaskell and certainly it
could be set up as a pdxfunc meeting++.  At this point building momentum
for AmeroHaskell is what I'd like.
