I agree. Not that this should turn into a job posting list (if that's
what anyone's thinking), but I think job offers from sponsors of the
conference are quite acceptable. Also, as has been pointed out, this is
not a high traffic list.

I think, if I'm reading JT correctly, up to one job post a day on this
list is not going to be a problem.
