I was not referring to power bills and such.  I was actually thinking of
burnt harddrives, cpus, memory sticks etc.  Such things can be purchased
and sent (and thus moneys tracked).  In other words, my statement was
about things rather than cash.  Having said that, it is entirely
possible that it would be a slippery slope with a lot of devs suddenly
in need, but I tend to think people are basically good and that that
won't happen.
