Well, as already announced, each topic was planned to be about 20
minutes, so I don't think we need to extend session time.
Skipping a topic can be avoided simply by looking at the clock, and
cut at 20 minutes.

Each topic isn't expected to be a big "show" at all.  We hope each the
topic leader shows a couple of slides at most to state the problem and
the possible solution, and then leads the discussions.  Plumbers is a
place to discuss the feature and the problem we are facing, not a
place to demonstrate the already existing solution.

Of course, it's possible to ask more slots, if you are sure that one
topic would need really 40 minutes discussions.

BTW, there is one more slot, planned for my topic for channel mapping
API.  This can be used also for the pending issues, for example.
