Better to have a conference (made possible by OCLC funding) without OCLC
developers present then to have no conf at all due to insufficient
funding (also without OCLC developers present!). (Or for that matter,
for us all to have to pay $300 registration fees or something).
But I agree it's always nice when developers working on OCLC web
services attend code4lib. I believe Xiaoming Liu has been to a code4lib
conf in the past, and it was very nice to have him there. (Unless I met
him at some other conf? Maybe I'm mis-remembering).
