In short, I think that the person should sign the iCLA with their legal name
(so that it can be bound by force of law) and then note on the iCLA that all
references to this person should be under 'X'.  (Only Jim will see this -
everyone else will see 'X'.)

FWIW, we have at least one ASF member who uses another name than what their
'legal' name is.  (N.B. I'm fairly sure that he follows this list - if so,
he can chime in.)

So, it's not a problem for us - until as Jim pointed out, we have to
disclose it - which generally means you're an Officer and at that point, all
bets are off as to your privacy...  -- justin
