I agree completely with this.
Perhaps a way to solve this problem in a painless way would be to choose
a set of topics for discussion (people can volunteer as moderator and it
will be easy to pick up one person)

A good way to achieve a good list of topics is to post on Gnotices a
call for topics.
Then, someone can organise those in related topics and give a name for
the corresponding session. Then, someone can look at the available
slots/rooms for the conf and assign them by picking from the list of
most important sessions. Then, we can easily pickup a moderator for each
session (the name of the person will be probably obvious from the name o
the session).

I can do this if no one from the GUADEC 2 team does it within a day or
