I'd like to wait a few more months, and then hand out equal shares
to the pool of active/recently active writers & developers, and 
possibly some translators (I don't know how to gauge translation 
effort; I beleive translating the docs would be hard work, but no 
ones done that yet).  I'm not sure, I think that list might have 10 
or 12 names on it.

If more money rolls in, then maybe there could be some token amounts
for hardware & network costs, but I don't want to encourage hardware/
server competition.  I own more effing servers that I know what to do 
with.  The hard part is running the machines, not buying the hardware. 
For example, search is still/again broken.

I'd like to avoid large sums accumulating in a paypal account, 
because of all the stories of paypal thefts.  That money could 
just go 'poof' and that would be bad.
