I agree very much. Attending the pure open-source conferences has been a challenge for me, frankly - I've wanted to go to YAPC::NA or OSCON for years, but finding both the time and budget among the science conferences that I more or less have to attend already is real difficult. I'd imagine that others face similar challenges. So any efforts at cross-fertilization are good.
