Also, to be clear, I have no objections to anything that's been
proposed.  I'm just interested in what gets the work off Gary's plate
and allows him to stop worrying about it.  And if anything I've said
sounded like causing more work, that was definitely not my intent.

And I believe I'm on record with this in board meeting minutes, but I
don't care one way or the other whether we fold the corporation into
some other umbrella organization, continue on, or decide what to do
with the "war chest" and just dissolve.  I'm on board with whatever
our consensus is.
