Makes sense to me, the more money, the more vote ;)

In response to Corey - doesn't PR already fulfill the role of the
fundraisers? Last I heard, they were the ones that contacted companies
for funds, hardware, and other resources, contacted institutions for our
server colos, and handled individual developer hardware requests.
Perhaps we could add some manpower and direction (not sure if they need
it though). Perhaps Swift and Klieber would be more qualified to
comment.
