Thanks for your input, Ted.  Caltech's WAN-in-Lab also allows a
reproducible collaborative environment that could be used before
and/or after the meeting, but I think it is useful having face-to-face
contact in addition to remote collaboration.

(I didn't mention WAN-in-Lab explicitly in the previous email, since
these experiments would probably not be using the optical links which
make WAN-in-Lab unique, but the remote access infrastructure could
still be used.)
