Well ... that's an interesting question.  While hiring could happen outside
of the ASF, AFAIK there is nothing to stop us from accepting funds and
having a group (analogous to our Travel Assistance process) that offered

I do agree that I'd like to see the Board and Membership weigh in on that
discussion if/when it ever becomes one.
