Okay - to kick off another branch of the discussion I'll admit that I'm not
entirely sure at the moment......   I based the suggestion on a posting from
Paul (many months ago) where he mentioned that he (personally) wasn't
suffering from the lack of funding - it was more a case of not being able to
fund other developers for projects & features that might have a lengthy
development cycle.

On that basis I was suggesting that the current monthly contributions be
used to pay (expenses only) for a paid fundraiser.  The fundraiser would
raise awareness of Ardour through magazines, exhibitions, contacts with
industry professionals etc,  whilst earning a percentage from any increase
that he/she was able to generate in the contributions.

Haven't entirely thought it through - but something like that.
