Have you talked to the CodeCon organizers about this?  My guess is  
they'd welcome the extra help with the conference-as-it-stands, but  
they're not interested in expanding into Perl territory.  CodeCon is a  
language-agnostic forum for presenting cutting-edge technology  
concepts; it's not a language users' conference.  It's much more TED  
than YAPC.

Not saying CodeCon isn't awesome, or YAPC isn't awesome--I love both.   
Just saying CodeCon's focus might not mesh well with SFPUG's plans.
