I also doubt that the pot would be used to take time away from the other 
projects people are working on.  But I think (if there were enough 
money) we could probably use it to hire some contractors for piecemeal work.

But I also completely agree with JB.  We need to first figure out what 
we would use the money for, and then how much money we'll need to do 
those things, and then how we want to raise that money.
