I'm not sure how we would go about this?  Maybe just look at similar workshops in other places and see what the turnout might be.  Or, just pick a venue to get a capacity and use the "if we build it, they will come" approach.  I would think that if we do a good job of getting the word out, people who are somewhat local could be convinced to come out for a day -- people who wouldn't otherwise come to a PerlMongers meeting.  Those aren't the sort of people we'd be able to get a head count from at this point.

I would vote for this option.

I've posted some options on the Wiki:
