> *) Non-registered users can also sign up by entering their name and address
> *) Users can reserve N spots in the event
> *) Users get confirmation email

Oh, hello everybody on EC,
I should say that Jesse's suggestion is really useful, but i'm not
good enough in php, so i hope those functions will be included,
because I need them too!
